Alex & Maia Shibutani Reveal They're Taking a Year Off From Competitive Skating

Alex and Maia Shibutani have announced that they plan to take the upcoming competitive season off.

While we won’t be seeing the sibling duo on the ice competitively, the two-time Olympic bronze medalists are still on the ice for the Stars on Ice tour.

They also aren’t ruling out returning to competition in the 2019-2020 season.

“Our experience at the Olympic Games was the result of four years of relentless training and dedication,” Maia shared in their statement (via TeamUSA).

“While we are still young and love competing and performing, we have exciting projects that we have the opportunity to work on both together and individually.”

Alex adds, “We are currently touring with Stars on Ice and have plans to skate, train, and create new programs for shows we will be skating in throughout the year.”

He also sent thanks to their fans: “The support we have received from everyone around the world has been amazing and we are so grateful. We are incredibly excited about our new projects and opportunities and look forward to sharing them with everyone soon.”

Maia and Alex were also just signed to UTA for future endeavors.

Maia & Alex Shibutani Made Team USA Hats For BTS - Here's What Happened To Them

Right when the Olympics kicked off, figure skaters Maia and Alex Shibutani revealed that they made customized hats for K-pop band, BTS.

So, what happened to them?

“We were able to hand off the hats, not directly to BTS, but [to] people that we trust will be able to deliver them. They are in transit at the moment,” they shared in a recent interview with Elle.

However, it looks like the hats already made it to the band — because Jin and V were spotted with them! Check out the pics below!

Maia and Alex also spoke about how they were able to connect with BTS and other K-pop stars because of the universal language of music.

“People all around the world are connecting because the music is good, the dancing is good, the talent is so evident,” Alex shared. “Music is one of those universal languages that everyone can understand. In a lot of ways, we had to do the same thing being different in our sport. We had to make sure that our talent spoke louder than anyone’s preconceived notions.”

He adds, “The message they promote through their music is also very positive and we wanted to show our appreciation.”
