Years on National Team:
Since switching partners from Samuel Tetrault to Bryce Davison in July of 2003, it's been upwards and onwards for Jessica Dubé. Although she continues to skate in singles, it has been with her new partner in pairs that she has enjoyed her greatest success.
After winning the Mexico Cup and the SBC Cup in 2003, both junior grand prix events, it came as no surprise when the duo skated to gold at the 2004 Canadian Junior Championships. Later that year, the pair would win another couple of junior events, this time in Harbin and Long Beach.
Unfortunately, an injury to Dubé's knee in 2005 would deny the pair a chance to compete at the Canadian National Championships. However, by the time the Junior World Championships rolled around, the two were good to go and captured a surprising silver medal. A fourth-place finish at the Cup of China and a sixth-place result at Skate America were proof that fellow Canadians Valerie Marcoux and Craig Buntin would be in for some competition for the title of top Canadian pairs team.
At the 2006 Canadian Championships, the veteran team of Marcoux and Buntin did end up prevailing, but a brave performance by Davison and an injured Dubé, who had badly sprained her wrist in a car accident, earned them the silver medal and a ticket to Turin.
It's unlikely, that in the hierarchical sport of figure skating, the new pair will medal in Italy in 2006 but if they continue to improve, 2010 in Vancouver may be a different story.
