The Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang continue on. For the Americans, Monday night was marked bronze as the world turned to ice dancing. Alex and Maia Shibutani, brother and sister ice dancing duo, snagged third place behind France (silver) and Canada (gold). (The Shibutanis also helped Team USA earn a bronze earlier in the Games.)

The Shib Sibs performed their free dance to the tune of a Coldplay medley, which you can watch here. Dressed in matching red, brother and sister gracefully glided across the ice in perfect sync. The free dance earned them a 114.86, adding into a 192.59 total. Unfortunately, nobody was going to beat Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who set a world-record with a 206.07 overall score.

Alex, 26, and Maia, 23, reflect each other almost exactly off the ice, too. On Twitter, for instance, Alex has 87,500 followers to Maia's 87,300. They are each popular on social media. So is their joint Shib Sibs Instagram account.

Take a look at some of their social media highlights since the beginning of the Olympics in Pyeongchang, including a shout out to BTS.
