Zachary Donohue (born January 8, 1991) is an American ice dancer. With Madison Hubbell, he is the 2014 Four Continents champion, a two-time Nebelhorn Trophy champion (2011, 2013), and the 2012 U.S. national bronze medalist.

With former partner Piper Gilles, he won three medals on the ISU Junior Grand Prix series.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

In the 2006–2007 season, Donohue competed with Kaylyn Patitucci. They placed 5th on the novice level at the Eastern Sectional Championships and did not advance to the 2007 U.S. Championships.

In the 2007–2008 season, Donohue competed with Lili Lamar. They placed 5th on the Junior level at the Eastern Sectional Championships and did not advance to the 2008 U.S. Championships.

Partnership with Gilles[edit]

Donohue teamed up with Piper Gilles ahead of the 2008–09 season. They made their international debut at the 2008–09 ISU Junior Grand Prix event in Ostrava, Czech Republic, which they won. They placed second at their second event in Cape Town, South Africa, qualifying them for the 2008–09 Junior Grand Prix Final in South Korea. They withdrew from the Junior Grand Prix Final before the competition due to injury to Gilles. They won the bronze medal on the junior level at the 2009 and 2010 U.S. Championships. In 2010, Gilles & Donohue were selected to compete for the United States at the World Junior Championships. They placed 9th out of a field of 34 teams. They announced the end of their partnership in May 2010. Donohue partnered with Alissandra Aronow and trained in Canton, Michigan, under the coaching team of Igor Shpilband and Marina Zueva. They competed at the senior level for the 2010-11 season, and ended their partnership shortly after the 2011 U.S. Championships.

Partnership with Hubbell[edit]

Hubbell and Donohue at the 2011 Skate America

On May 12, 2011, it was announced that he had teamed up with Madison Hubbell.[1] The new partnership trains at the Detroit Skating Club under the coaching team of Pasquale Camerlengo, Anjelika Krylova, and Natalia Annenko-Deller.[2] They made their international debut at the 2011 Nebelhorn Trophy where they won the gold medal.[3][4] They finished 10th at the 2012 World Championships.

Hubbell sustained a concussion in June 2013.[5] In 2013–14, Hubbell/Donohue won gold at the 2013 Nebelhorn Trophy, placed fourth at the 2013 Skate America, and won their first Grand Prix medal, bronze, at the 2013 Skate Canada International. After placing fourth at the 2014 U.S. Championships, they were assigned to the 2014 Four Continents Championships and finished ahead of Piper Gilles / Paul Poirier to take the gold medal. Hubbell/Donohue were first alternates for the 2014 World Championships but did not take the slot made available when Davis/White withdrew; Hubbell had sustained a torn labrum in her left hip[6] and underwent surgery in March 2014.[5]

For the 2014–15 Grand Prix season, Hubbell/Donohue were assigned to the 2014 Skate Canada International and 2014 Trophée Éric Bompard.[7]
