How did Alex and Maia Shibutani Earn Their Money & Wealth?

Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts, Alex, and Maia Shibutani are separated by three years (the former being the older one). Growing up, they started skating at an early age. As it’s often the case, however, the two siblings originally trained as single skaters. Ultimately, it wasn’t until they watched an ice dance performance at the 2003 World Championships, that they decided to give it a try.

By the spring of 2004, the siblings had paired up to compete in ice dancing. Under the guidance of coaches Susie Kelley and Andy Stroukoff, they eventually competed on the juvenile level for the first time during the 2004-5 season.

A year after competing at the intermediate level in 2005, they moved up to compete at the novice level for the 2006-07 season. Following a win at the 2007 US Championships, they won their second consecutive national title, ahead of Kyle Herring and Sara Bailey.

A year later, the siblings started to compete as juniors on the international circuit. After making their debut at the ISU Junior Grand Prix event, they won the silver medal in Madrid, Spain. From there, they went on to finish second at the 2009 US Championships. Following that, the pair were assigned to compete at the 2009 World Junior Championships, where they won silver.

Since 2010, the two have been competing at the senior level. Over the past few years, they medalled at numerous events including at the World Championships, Four Continents, Finlandia Trophy, and Cup of China, to name a few.

In 2014, the Shibutanis were named to the US Team for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. After a solid performance, they placed ninth overall at the games. Later that same year, they finished in sixth place at the 2014 World Championships.

From then until now, they’ve earned multiple titles in ice dancing. In fact, they will once again be competing for a chance to win gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea this month.
