    A little information on Madison's health: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/...t-skate-canada

    Weaver and Poje train in Detroit, often in the same practices as the American team of Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, who placed third with 153.20 points.
    Hubbell and Donohue, who finished fourth a week ago at Skate America, were relieved to finish as well as they did at Skate Canada. Hubbell has been coping with some pain in her hip, and then during the morning practice, Donohue accidentally elbowed her in the head.
    "Skating tonight was a question of if I could get through it," Hubbell said, adding, "We're very happy to have pushed through it and are really happy to get a week off."

    I hope that she is not seriously injured and that some rest is all she needs. They have had 3 competitions in the last month!! They deserve a little R&R!

    Congratulations to Madison & Zach for winning their first GP medal, and for achieving personal best scores in both the FD and SD, as well as overall!

    Someone on their Facebook page posted that H/D will be on WDIV news Detroit (http://www.clickondetroit.com) Wednesday morning at 6:30 AM.

    Think they meant, Tuesday morning: http://www.clickondetroit.com/sports...z/-/index.html

    Really nice site, UMBS Go Blue!!! What a nice Christmas present for their fans!

    All it needs is a video section, with links to their best performances

    New article:

    http://ctbythenumbers.info/2014/01/0...nships-boston/

    She recalls vividly when she once broached the subject of giving up skating, as a youngster. “Well, there was just no way. He said he’d run away from home, sleep on the ice, and drive the Zamboni if he had to. That’s when I knew how much skating meant to him.”

    Zach Donohue

    Sport: Ice dancing
    Hometown: Madison

    Zach Donohue and his partner, Madison Hubbell, are one of four ice dancing pairs vying for three spots. Neither has Olympic experience but they were bronze medalists at the 2012 U.S. Nationals. He went to West Woods Christian Academy in Hamden until his training schedule made home schooling a better option.

    Any shout-outs to people back home?

    I know this sounds corny, but honestly my mom. She has mercilessly killed herself so that I could skate. We are not a rich family so she’s had to work at the night shift at Yale University on top of two jobs during the day to provide for my skating. Without her I couldn’t do what I’m doing.

    Favorite local restaurant?

    We live near the two best pizza places in the world. Pepe’s and Sally’s. I love them both because they pile on as much meat for me as they possibly can whenever I go there.

    What’s a must-do when you come home?

    My mom and I love to go to Hammonasset. I still love going there, even though when I was younger I was stung by a jellyfish 15 times. I have both great and scarring memories.

    What are you known for?

    Different and interesting lifts.
