The Hubbells announced the end of their partnership in May 2011.

Madison and Keiffer are a brother-and-sister team ... They are the 2008 U.S. junior champions and 2006 Junior Grand Prix (JGP) Final champions ... Finished second at the 2008 JGP Final ... Also won U.S. titles at the juvenile (2003) and intermediate (2004) levels ... Captured the bronze at the 2010 Four Continents Championships ... Switched coaches following the 2009-10 season, moving from Yuri Chesnichenko and Yaroslava Nechaeva in Ann Arbor, Mich., to Pasquale Camerlengo, Angelika Krylova, Liz Swallow and Natalia Deller in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

Madison started to skate at age 5 because she wanted to grow up to be just like Kristi Yamaguchi... Participated in the Basic Skills Program in 1996 ... Biggest influence in her life is Kristi Yamaguchi ... If she weren't a skater, she'd want to be a tennis player ... Enjoys crafts, baking, gardening, swimming, biking and playing tennis ... Has a passion for animals ... People would be surprised to learn that she is clumsy everywhere but the ice - "I am always the person who walks away with bumps and bruises." ... Considers herself a homebody - "I will choose to stay home with family and close friends over going out every time." ... Has overcome a broken foot and appendicitis ... Would love to have dinner with Stephen Colbert ... Biggest life-defining moment was the day she watched Kristi Yamaguchi and decided she wanted to be a figure skater ... Wants to try rock climbing after she's done competing ... Would like to meet Shawn White - "He is a great example of someone who really enjoys their sport. He excels because he has fun, and not the other way around."
