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.
