David Pelletier and Jamie Sale marry. What a love story. They get divorced, but don't say anything publicly, so the media has to make like they're still married and as far as fans go, fans think they're still married. Things are just fine. Jamie up and marries Craig Simpson but in interviews and for fan interaction purposes makes like she's still married to David Pelletier, so even though she is now Mrs.
Craig Simpson, she and David, the media, and other figure skaters have to pretend she's still married to David. Maybe they'll come clean when they're totally, completely retired, but the longer they can put it off and avoid dealing with it, the better. The kid is little- it doesn't affect their child. And fans get pissed at anyone who insinuates there is ever trouble in paradise between David and Jamie.
If Jamie has kids with Craig, she doesn't acknowledge it and the media plays along. Wouldn't that have been smarter? Beats me why they didn't go in that direction. It's got to be better than having the public actually know who you're actually married to.
Scott's going to be 25 years old in September. I wonder if he'd ever dreamed he'd be lying about Tessa at age 25 and still pretending to have been in a five-year relationship with Jessica Dube. It's so confusing what a whole lot of nothing Sale and Pelletier have said to the public while remaining accessible, outspoken public personalities and performers and while the public knows the gist of everything one might say the public should know. The Grand Prix Final, held in Kitchener, Ontario , was important because it was the only chance to test their programs against the top contenders before the Olympics.
They headed into the Canadian Championships in Hamilton, Ontario with confidence, having defeated Berezhnaya and Sikharulidze, their biggest rivals. They were able to win the title despite missing several elements in the long program, and the performance increased talks that they would revert to "Love Story" for the Olympic Games.
The pressure for the Olympics was intense. Despite several silvers and bronzes, Canada had only won two gold medals in figure skating, in and They skated a clean short program, only to trip and fall on their closing pose. Because the fall was not on an element, it did not receive a deduction.
They placed second behind Berezhnaya and Sikharulidze. In the long program, Sale and Pelletier also placed second. The next day, the French judge Marie-Reine Le Gougne admitted she had been pressured into awarding the long program to the Russians in exchange for a first-place vote for the French ice dancing team of Marina Anissina and Gwendal Peizerat , and a judging controversy quickly blew up.
The scandal ultimately resulted in the suspension of several judges and officials, and Le Gougne's vote was discarded, leaving the long program a tie. The controversy resulted in several changes to the judging system. How am I going to make this work? That was instant, hey? Over a year passed before they made it public. Her parents split when she was She guesses that her mother spent about a quarter of a million dollars on her skating lessons in total.
At 16, Jamie traveled to Lillehammer as the youngest member of the Canadian Olympic team. She remembers sitting in the hall of her Olympic dorm trying to do her homework when skater Isabelle Brasseur came by and told her to put it away: So was David Pelletier, then a year-old skater who had yet to win a major competition.
After auditions, they had their first full-length skate in He was very strong. We had an instant chemistry — not a love chemistry. It was meant to be. It was almost — it was electric. By , David and his wife had separated, and soon after, he and Jamie became a couple. The partnership quickly paid off with a World Championship.
At the Salt Lake City Olympics, the romance became entirely public when they skated a flawless long program to the theme from Love Story, ending in a full-body clinch and a standing ovation. Their loss to the Russian pair flushed into the light a judging system rife with corruption, and in the days that followed, Jamie and David were transformed into international media sensations: Jamie recalls the security team that trailed them for protection; later, she found out that even the CIA had been enlisted to ensure their safety.
When the madness of Salt Lake City died down at last, they turned professional, joining Stars on Ice. I felt bad actually for the other skaters. We toured with the Russians for four years after and we never really talked about it. She continued coaching until a few weeks before her due date, doing pilates into her ninth month.
