The gold-silver finish by Canada’s Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe in Sochi was exciting, amazing and unforgettable.

But it wasn’t quite history-making.

When the Montreal siblings dominated the podium in women's slalom on Saturday, it marked the fourth time in Olympics history a pair of sisters have taken the top two spots in an individual event.

The others, according to Olympstats, were France’s Christine and Marielle Goitschel at the 1964 Games – they won gold-silver in the slalom and giant slalom – and Doris and Angelika Neuner of Austria in the luge in 1992 in Albertville.

Including Summer and Winter Games, there have also been eight gold-silver brother finishes at the Games, according to Olympstats. The most recent? 2006 in Turin, when brothers Philipp and Simon Schoch of Switzerland owned the podium in snowboarding.
