Biography

Power, precision, innovation and elegance are all words that describe three-time U.S. Ice Dance Champions, three-time World Championship medalists, Madison Chock and Evan Bates. Whether portraying a snake charmer and a serpent or an astronaut and a space alien, the duo are known for their mesmerizing performances, innovative lifts and creative costumes.

After back-to-back silver medals at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Madi and Evan reached the top spot of the podium in 2015. They frequently earned podium finishes at international competitions, including World Championship medals in 2015 and 2016, but they also faced setbacks. They never lost their championship attitude and determination, and in 2020 reclaimed the U.S. title with their incredible snake charmer free skate that received rave reviews everywhere they performed it and has garnered over 3.3 million views on YouTube.

Since July 2019, Madi and Evan have trained at the Ice Academy Montreal under Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon. The competitive environment training alongside the top ice dancers in the world pushes them to excel. They were featured in the Olympic Channel documentary, On Edge, about their 2022 Olympic journey.

Thus far, they have represented the United States with a historic three Olympic Winter Games together and the fourth for Evan making him the first U.S. skater in any disciple to compete in four Winter Olympics.

At the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing, Madi and Evan helped secure a silver medal for Team USA with their clutch free dance performance in the Team Event. They finished off their 2022 season by earning bronze at the 2022 World Figure Skating Championships.

“We are still really passionate about skating,” Evan told People. “We still feel young and we still feel like there’s room for improvement and growth.”

In March 2022, Evan was elected as the ice dance member of the ISU Athletes Commission.

When they are not training, Madi and Evan often can be found walking their toy poodles, Henry and Stella, to local farmers’ market or cafés in Montreal. Evan enjoys playing guitar, golf and following University of Michigan sports. Evan is the 52nd member of his father’s side of the family to attend the university. Madi, who has taken art classes and has a passion for fashion, designs the couple’s skating costumes with Montreal-based costume designer, Mathieu Caron. She also likes to draw, paint, and read.

Madi and Evan enjoy hosting their podcast, Unlaced with Chock and Bates. In 20-minute episodes, the pair opens up about their relationship on and off the ice: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/unlaced-with-chock-and-bates/id1588753787.

Madi, 30, and Evan, 33, recreated their first date for People Magazine. While that happened as teenagers, it took them until 2011 to team up on the ice and until 2017 to become an off-ice couple. “It’s wonderful because it’s a core memory for us in our relationship and it’s special to get to relive it like this,” Evan told People of their return date. “It was really fun to revisit it so many years later and to look back on our journey. That was kind of where our love story began.” 

In June 2022, Madi and Evan announced their engagement. They have plans to marry in 2024.
