T he Winter Olympic games in PyeongChang, South Korea, will be an extravaganza of cold weather sports, over which the real-life couples of ice skating will arguably take the center stage. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that many of the figure skating and ice dancing pairs at the Winter Olympics are couples both on and off the ice — after all, partners that skate together, stay together. Both skated with other partners beforehand but what will make this Olympics even more special is that this will be the first games that the pair will be competing as a real-life couple. In an interview with NBC , Evan shared that he thinks this Olympics will be momentous for the both of them. While Madison Hubbell and Zach Donohue are no longer together, the pair dated for two-and-a-half years despite initially not liking one another as partners on the ice. Ahead of the intense preparation for the Winter Games, the ice dancing pair decided it was best to split up.
