Jessica Dubé & Bryce Davison
Athletes

From 2004 until 2010, Bryce Davison and Jessica Dube rocked the skating scene as a dynamic pair. In 2004, they were Junior Canadian Pairs Champions and by 2007 were the Senior Canadian Pair Champions and again in 2009 and 2010.

At the International competition level, they achieved great success and also overcame insurmountable odds.  It was following their horrendous accident that they came back in record time to skate with confidence and passion to thrill the home audience in London.

Achievements: 2008 World Bronze Medalists and the 2009 Four Continents Silver Medalists. They represented Canada at the 2006 and 2010 Winter Olympics.

Jessica Dube  and Bryce Davison

Bryce and Jessica trained in and represented Quebec Section at our National Championships. However, Bryce was a long time Western Ontario Section skater prior to partnering with Jessica. He was a successful team skater and a wonderful example of sportsmanship, manners and leadership for Western Ontario Section skaters.

Bryce has begun a successful career as a Coach in Western Ontario.


David Dore
Builder

As the youngest President of the Canadian Figure Skating Association, David Dore brought energy, enthusiasm and a passion for excellence to the role. He carried those attributes through his eighteen years as Director General.

His experience as a national medalist, world and Olympic judge, and involvement at the club and section level, combined with his background in ice show direction and production provided the broad range of experience that allowed him to excel as the association’s leader. He revamped the association into a strong, vibrant, forward-thinking organization.

David Dore

During his tenure he developed the National Team program, created the Athlete Trust, developed successful marketing and television concepts and staged three highly successful ISU World Figure Skating Championships. Under his leadership, Canadian skaters won more Olympic and world medals than during any other time.
He is one of the most decorated administrators and volunteers in Canadian sport, and was inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.

In 2002, he received the International Olympic Committee’s highest honour, the Olympic Order, for his contribution to sport in the global community. He continues to serve the sport he loves as the first Canadian to ever be elected to the office of Vice President of the International Skating Union.


Anne Schelter
Professional

When one thinks of Anne Schelter a rather shy and charming woman comes to mind. Anne is a genius in the understanding and working of the figure skate blade and the body above it. In the 1980’s, she created a programme of skills and movement to improve the skating ability of athletes. This programme called “Annie’s Edges” is used worldwide as a major tool to improve control and movement and create clean transitions from one edge to the other. Annie's Edges is still popular and is being presented at seminars, and in clubs and schools worldwide. 

In Ottawa, Anne and Bob McAvoy together produced Outdoor Ice Theatre, the first skating show on the Rideau Canal. 

Anne Schelter

In the 1990's, Anne became involved with the ISU creating and moderating seminars for judges on the presentation mark.

In 2006, she joined Shelley Barnett at NEXXICE. Anne’s love for music, theatre and art creativity make her programmes excel and she has been a major contributor to the success of NEXXICE through her imagination and ability to translate the thought to the ice.

In the past 9 years the team has won 9 Canadian Championships, and 2 bronze, 1 gold, and 3 silver medals at World's.

Anne lives on a farm near Hamilton, Ontario where she enjoys her animals, gardening, and being surrounded by nature.

Western Ontario Section has been a recipient of the talents and kindness of Anne Schelter as she has worked with our coaches, skaters and officials to help them better understand and execute the use of the blade and the body as a unit.
