Get to Know the Athletes Set to Win Big at the 2022 Olympics

The Basics: A decade-long partnership has brought the ice dancers from Michigan (Hubbell, 30) and Connecticut (Donohue, 31) three national titles, three World Championship medals and a fourth-place finish in South Korea. But they’re hoping to claim a spot on the podium in their final Games. 
Cutting Edge, Anyone?: Paired professionally in 2011 when Hubbell’s previous partner, older brother Keiffer, retired, “We literally loathed each other,” Donohue revealed in a joint interview with Team USA. “I had to take her hand and she was like, ‘I don’t really want to skate with this dude.'” Six months later they were dating. Though they split after two-and-a-half years, neither has any regrets. “It allowed us to get to know each other on a deeper level and have a really deep relationship,” said Hubbell. Post-split, she continued, “I think that our relationship got better and even closer—just in a different way.”
On the Menu: Though Donohue also flips for Italian, steak and stuffed bell peppers, they share a mutual love of Japanese cuisine. As Hubbell put it on their joint website, “One food that I really believe I could eat every day is sushi!”
