Born on November 17, 1999, Donovan dabbled in sports for the first time at the age of 4 years in the CODE in the disciplines of Diving and Artistic Gymnastics, where at his young age he managed to represent Jalisco in the National Olympics on both sports.
At the age of 8, he decided to dedicate himself to figure skating as a high-performance sport at the Ice Land Ice Rink.
Complementing with Ballet to perfect routines in the prestigious Academy of Ballet Zayi under the supervision of Misses Ana Jurado.
He is currently training with his coach Gregorio Núñez in the City of Leon, Guanajuato.
Both moved to this city for the adequate rink facilities to continue training in better conditions.
Donovan is at a point in his career in which the economic support of third parties is of vital importance so that he can continue to prepare and continue to represent Mexico in events of International and World stature.
These events will help him build his way to fulfill his goal of making history by representing his country in the next Olympic Games of 2022.
Currently Donovan has the support of few sponsors of which most have been in products. So his parents have asked for loans and organized different activities for raising funds such as raffles, collections, breakfasts, etc. Everything to help him attend competitions.
It is important to highlight the important role that his coach Gregorio Núñez has taken, since Donovan was young, he has played the role of a second father.
A clear example is the confidence he has had in Donovan. Since he took his first steps on the ice, he has taught him and trained him as an athlete from scratch without charging anything. He has even used his money so that the skater can attend International competitions.
On the other hand, the skater is working as a team with his coach giving classes to a team of girls to help them provide the resource that figure skating demands. Although the ideal scenario would be that Donovan wouldn’t have the pressure and stress of working, so that he could only focus on giving 100% in his training and competitions.
This is how it has been done, to try to complete the resource. The difficult thing is that we are in a situation in which there are not many options left so it is vital to get support from third parties so that he can continue his path in figure skating.
