The ice dancing Shib Sibs wrote a message with their latest YouTube video, writing, “WE DID IT! A dream that has been over 10 years in the making came true last week in Boston.”
Alex and Maia continued, “At the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, we were named to an amazing team of athletes that will be representing the United States in Figure Skating at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. We didn’t have as much time throughout the week to vlog, but this is a little peek at the Team’s introduction during the Smucker’s Skating Spectacular (We don’t know where Jeremy, Jason, and Felicia were at the beginning)! It was an incredible moment, and it is one that every member of this team will remember for the rest of their lives.
“Thank you to all of our fans and subscribers who have supported us through the first year and a half (22 videos) of our YouTube channel. And to those of you who have just found us, we hope you enjoy the videos as much as we enjoy sharing them with you! On to Sochi!”
Alex and Maia placed third at the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
