Canadian Skier Left in the Cold After Her Two Sisters Both Win Medals
It's always hard to be a sibling in a family of overachievers.
It's always hard to be a sibling in a family of overachievers. Cooper Manning, brother of Eli and Peyton, is a successful energy trader even if his pro football career never came to pass. Zeke Emanuel, brother of Rahm and Ari, is a highly respected bioethicist, even if he also must occasionally write about the sordid sex lives of seniors.
Then there are the three Dufour-Lapointe sisters, Maxime (24), Chloe (22), and Justine (19), all of whom qualified for and competed in the Freestyle Skiing Ladies' Moguls for Canada. Just moments ago, Justine took gold and Chloe took silver. Maxime, who didn't qualify for the finals, finished 12th. Defending champion Hannah Kearney from the American team took the bronze.
This isn't the only family affair at this year's Winter Games.
There have been more siblings from one family in one event - a quartet of Tames brothers competed for Mexico in bobsled at the Calgary Games in 1988 - and even at Rosa Khutor's Extreme Park there is a rival family from New Zealand.
The Wells brothers Jossi, 23, Byron, 21, and Beau-James, 18, are all competing in the freestyle skiing and are coached by father Bruce.
Here's hoping there might be romance on the slopes between the Wells brothers and the Dufour-Lapointe sisters. Though it'd be hard to top this family photo:
