Jamie Sale and David Pelletier Biography

Growing Up On Ice, Change Partners And Skate, Together At Last, The Salt Lake Scandal

Canadian figure skaters

It is the dream of perhaps every amateur athlete: to mount the podium and accept an Olympic gold medal. It happened for Canadian pairs skaters Jamie Sale (pronounced SA-lay) and David Pelletier (PELL-tee-ay). But in their case, the glow of the gold was tarnished somewhat by the taint of scandal that preceded it.
