Alex & Maia Shibutani Reveal Why They Didn't March in Winter Olympics 2018 Opening Ceremony

Alex and Maia Shibutani are opening up about why they chose to skip out on the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Friday (February 9).

The ice dancers and siblings took to Twitter to explain their absence to fans.

“@MaiaShibutani and I didn’t march in the #OpeningCeremony,” Alex captioned the photo of the two below. “We missed being with our @TeamUSA teammates, but it was important for us to get good rest before we start competing. We still got into our uniforms and took pics with our friends before they left for the Olympic Stadium.”

“Photos from last night!” Maia added on her own Twitter. “@AlexShibutani and I didn’t attend the #OpeningCeremony so that we could prepare for our competition, but we took some pictures with our @TeamUSA teammates before they went to the stadium! 😊❤️🇺🇸 #TeamUSA #WinterOlympics.”

    Japanese people are so ugly. How did they end up on the team? Bribery? There are more talented Korean skaters, who have never attacked the US. What the!
