Maia & Alex Shibutani Dish About What It's Really Like To Skate at the Olympics

Alex and Maia Shibutani play around with their double bronze medals during their appearance on BUILD Series in New York City on Friday afternoon (March 2).

The two ice dancing siblings opened up at the event about how it really feels to skate at the Olympics versus other events.

“Going in, you kind of have that game plan of just acting like this is any other skate,” Maia explains. “Once you are there in the Olympic environment, it’s inevitable that you’re going to feel the pressure.”

“The Olympic rings are everywhere, the audience is going insane…it’s not like any other skating competition.”

Alex adds, “You have the audience, and people watching around the world and that adds to the stakes, and to the excitement.”

Earlier in the week, Maia and Alex also performed their free dance at Rockefeller Center on Today, on Live! with Kelly and Ryan, and also stopped by the Empire State Building.
