    Today featured both Gracie Gold and Mikaela Shiffrin(champion skiier), potential Olympic hopefuls and medalists. Three things that I was able to discern:


    - Both have physician fathers who are both anesthesiologists
    - Both have nurse mothers.
    - Both are currently 17 years old

    Just some interesting coincidences
