A two-time world bronze medalist (2014, 2015), Donnell medaled at the Pacific Rim Championships, American Cup and Winter Cup events in 2016. Chasing his dream of making his first Olympic team, Donnell hopes to compete with Team USA in Rio.


While Donnell is driven to achieve his athletic goals, he is working just as hard to complete his associate degree in web graphic design at DeVry University.


It can be very difficult for athletes, especially U.S Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls, to continue their education while spending countless hours practicing and traveling the world to compete at the highest level in sports. DeVry University is an official education provider of Team USA, providing the athletes with the opportunity and resources to earn undergraduate and graduate degrees while pursuing their Olympic dreams.
