The latest bad news for the event, one of six competitions that make up the International Skating Union’s Grand Prix series, came on Monday. Two-time reigning Canadian pairs champs Jessica Dube and Bryce Davison dropped out after the latter skater injured his right knee last week in practice.
“I would call it bad luck more than anything,” said Mike Slipchuk, Skate Canada’s director of high performance. “It’s kind of a fluke thing. At a training session, (Davison) came out of a jump and his knee locked. That’s never a good sign.””
Pairs event at SC is officially suck.
