Zachary and I would like to raise money for the 2016-2017 season. We would like the opportunity to work with ballroom, theater, and hip hop coaches to develop programs that will bring more interest to the sport of ice dance, while bringing us to the top of U.S. ice dance. We would like to thank everyone for their support!

I think they medal at Nationals and make the Olympic team.

This week will tell a lot when they square off against the Shibs at SkAm.

I've picked H/D to eek out a placement above the Shibs... we'll see.

(1) Reminder that Hubbell is blogging all season for IceNetwork. IIRC, she has written two installments so far.

(2) And Hubbell and Donohue have separate individual accounts on both Twitter and Instagram.
ETA:
- On Twitter: she is @MadiHubbell; he is @ZachTDonohue
- On Instagram: she is @splashmadison; he is @zachtdonohue.​

(3)

Caveat:
I do not think the tumblr content at those links is necessarily posted BY Hubbell and Donohue themselves.
Referring to them as "Tumblr accounts for Madi and Zach" -- as if they have control over the content -- is rather misleading, IMHO.

I am looking forward to seeing the programs this weekend too! Their connection on the ice makes the programs that much more enjoyable. Best of luck to them. I really think they have potential to go far, and this being only their 3rd year.

A little information on Madison's health: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/2013/10/26/63388730/host-country-goes-out-on-top-at-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!
