Olympic Ice Dancers Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue Say Skating Together Was 'Fate'

Olympic Ice Dancers Madison Hubbell & Zachary Donohue Say Skating Together Was 'Fate'

Team USA has three ice dance teams at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter OlympicsMaia and Alex Shibutani, Madison Chock and Evan Bates, and national champs Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue.

The two started skating together fairly recently, in 2011, and date a pair of other ice dancers, who just happen to skate together too.

But before they dated and skated, and broke up, they actually didn’t like each other at all.

“We were both competitors against each other and we hated each other,” Madison shared with People. “Our mutual coach at the time kind of forced us to start skating together just to kill time.

She adds, “We didn’t really want to skate together. It was fate.”

Madison and Zachary will make their Olympic debut TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on NBC.

Ice Dance Siblings Maia & Alex Shibutani Win Gold at Skate America 2016

Maia and Alex Shibutani show off their strong skills on the ice at 2016 Progressive Skate America held at Sears Centre Arena over the weekend in Chicago, Ill.

The ice dance champion siblings took over the title, with Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue taking the silver medal.

“It’s not a choice a lot of other teams are making, but it really allows us to show our leg lines and movement and really just skate freely,” Maia shared of wearing pants for their short dance.

She added, “It was a collective thought from the group that created the program, and it’s one thing to have the idea, but it takes confidence to wear pants out there, and I have that now! So it’s just fun.”

Pairs skaters Haven Denney and Brandon Frazier also won the silver medal. Jason Brown and Adam Rippon grabbed the silver and bronze medal for the men’s competition.

He continued, “Throughout our career, we’ve performed in so many different places and we’ve been fortunate to experience so many special moments. But, to have the opportunity to close out the Free Dance at a World Championships in the United States, in Boston, at a venue that means so much to the both of us is the stuff that dreams are made of. Thank you to our family. Thank you to our coaches. Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged us on this journey. We are so excited to share this with all of you.”

The enthusiasm and support the city has shown for this event has been amazing, and the Local Organizing Committee has been working extremely hard so that we can all enjoy #Worlds2016,” Alex shared in a little note on Instagram.

He added, “As athletes, it is a gift that we can pursue our dream and perform for an audience. We truly appreciate your support and all of the gifts that are thrown out onto the ice.
