Jessica Dubé



Jessica Dubé (born October 29, 1987 in Drummondville, Quebec) is a Canadian figure skater. Dubé began skating at age four and she and partner Bryce Davison compete in the pairs; while both also compete in Singles. The duo places 10th at the 2006 Winter Olympic Games and 7th at the World Championships in 2006. They won their first national crown in Nova Scotia at the 2007 Canadian Championships, yielding comparisons to Jamie Sale and David Pelletier in the process (with whom they had worked with just prior to Christmas 2006).

The 2006/2007 competitive season started for this pair at Nationals due to a scary on ice accident in the summer of 2006, which saw Jessica removed from the ice on a backboard. She then had knee surgery in September. The duo trained both short and long programs for nationals, while Jessica also trained only a short program for the singles event.

On 8 February 2007, Jessica was hit in the face by partner Bryce Davison`s skate during the free skate competition at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships in Colorado Springs. She immediately fell to the ice and clutched at her face as blood pooled on the ice. Davison comforted her as the medical staff put her on a stretcher and took her to a local hospital. She underwent surgery that night to repair a laceration on her left cheek and nose. Her eye was not affected and nothing was broken. The pair was on their third rotation of a side-by-side camel - where one leg is parallel to the ice as they spin - when Davison began to drift toward Dubé, catching her with his skate. She is expected to make a full recovery.
