Konrad Schaub (born in Edmonton, Alberta) is a Canadian former ice dancer who competed for Canada and Austria. With Allison MacLean, he is the 1995 Karl Schäfer Memorial bronze medalist and a two-time Austrian national champion. They competed in the final segment at four ISU Championships.

Career[edit]

Schaub teamed up with Allison MacLean in 1981.[citation needed] They competed together in ice dancing, working their way up the Canadian categories, from juvenile to senior.[citation needed] Representing Canada, they placed fifth at the 1988 World Junior Championships in Brisbane, Australia.[citation needed] They continued on the junior level the following season, winning bronze at the Merano Autumn Trophy in Merano, Italy,[1] and at the Canadian Championships.[2]

In 1992, MacLean/Schaub moved to Vienna, Austria, and chose Peter Schubl as their coach.[citation needed] MacLean was granted citizenship in 1994,[citation needed] enabling the team to represent Austria internationally. They would win two Austrian national titles[3] and bronze at the 1995 Karl Schäfer Memorial.[2] They qualified to the free dance at three senior-level ISU Championships, finishing 16th at the 1995 European Championships in Dortmund, Germany; 18th at the 1995 World Championships in Birmingham, England; and 18th at the 1996 World Championships in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.[citation needed]

Upon their retirement from competitive skating, MacLean/Schaub were the world's longest-standing team, having skated together for 15 years.[citation needed]
