Biography

Dubé began skating at age four and she and partner Bryce Davison compete in the pairs; while both also compete in Singles. The duo placed 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 just prior to Christmas).

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.

Accidents

On February 8, 2007, Jessica Dubé 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. The pair were on their third rotation of a side-by-side camel spin—where one leg is horizontal during the spin—when they began to drift towards one another, causing her face and his skate blade to connect. 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, receiving 80 stitches to repair a laceration on her left cheek and nose. Her eye was not affected and nothing was broken. Both skaters were later treated for post-traumatic stress disorder, but by March 2007 they had returned to competition together.[1][2]

In April 2009 at the inaugural World Team Skating championship in Tokyo, Davison was unable to catch Dubé during a triple twist lift. She remained motionless on the ice before being carried off. An announcement later in the show said that she had been taken to the hospital. CTV later reported that both Dubé and Davison were hospitalized as a precautionary measure, and as of a few days following the accident there were no reports of serious problems.
