Dube Sustains Nasty Fall at World Team Trophy

2008 World bronze medalists Jessica Dube, 21, and Bryce Davison, 23, of Contrecoeur, QC, suffered a nasty accident during the exhibition at The World Team Trophy today in Tokyo. While executing a triple Lutz twist Dube slammed to the ice from about nine feet in the air when Davison was unable to catch his partner. Dube was carried off the ice by Davison and transported to the first aid room.

The risky triple twist move is a new element the duo has been trying to master all season. According to Skate Canada officials Dube hit her head on the ice and is being transported via ambulance to a nearby hospital as a precautionary measure. Davison remained at her side.

Skate today will report an update on Jessica’s condition as soon as one is available.

This is not the first time Dube has suffered an injury during an ISU Competition. The couple withdrew from the 2007 Four Continents Championships when Davison accidentally hit Dube in the face with his blade during a side-by-side camel spin. Dube underwent plastic surgery that night and quickly recovered and was back on the ice soon after the injury.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jessica and Bryce and we are hoping if any injury was sustained she has a speedy recovery.

Dube and Davison participated in the competition and won the silver medal as part of Team Canada.
