Years on National Team:
Bryce Davison has taken a roundabout path to figure skating, beginning his sporting career as a hockey player before moving on to lacrosse. At age 12, he tried figure skating and realized that his strength on skates was a big help in pairs skating.
The youngster skated with several partners before finding a degree of permanence with Jessica Dube in July of 2003. Although he continues to skate singles, it has been with his new partner in pairs that he has enjoyed great 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.
Unfortunately, an injury to Dube's knee in 2005 would deny the pair a chance to compete at the Canadian National Championships. But, by the time the Junior World Championships rolled around, the two were good to go and won a surprising silver medal. Then, a fourth-place finish at the Cup of China and a sixth-place result at Skate America were growing 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 Dube, who had badly sprained her wrist in a car accident, earned them the silver medal and a ticket to Turin.
