White concerned about slopestyle course, more Sochi Olympics notes
Brother and sister Maia and Alex Shibutani are the first siblings to represent the U.S. in ice dancing, but the team has a history of sibling representation in pairs competition. Kim and Wayne Seybold were the most recent couple, placing tenth at the Calgary Games in 1988. Kitty and Peter Carruthers won a silver medal four years earlier in Sarajevo. But something was in the frozen water at the Innsbruck Games in 1964, when all three U.S. pair teams were sibling: Vivian and Ronald Joseph won a bronze medal, Julianne and Jerry Forheringill placed seventh, and Cynthia and Ronald Kauffman were eighth.
