Meet Jamie Sale, World and Olympic Gold Medalist, Life Mastery Consultant and PowHERpanel guest on April 14, 1-2 pm at the Calgary Woman’s Show.
Jamie Sale was born in Calgary and raised in Red Deer, Alberta. She began skating at an early age and moved into pairs figure skating by age twelve.
Sale competed in both singles and pairs until the age of nineteen and focused solely on her pairs career after that.
- Sale teamed up with Jason Turner for the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway and finished twelfth overall.
- In 1998, Sale paired up with David Pelletier and the duo earned a bronze medal in Grand Prix events during their first season together.
- In 2001, Sale and Pelletier became the first pair to win Worlds held in Canada since 1984 and were also awarded the Lou Marsh Trophy as outstanding Canadian athletes. Sale and Pelletier won gold at the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake City, a huge accomplishment as the Canadian figure skating program had not earned an Olympic gold medal since 1960.
- Following their Olympic win, Sale and Pelletier began touring with Stars on Ice and were inducted into the Skate Canada Hall of Fame in 2008 and the Olympic Hall of Fame in 2009. Later that year, Sale began her first season with CBC’s Battle of the Blades where she was paired with former NHL player Craig Simpson. The duo went on to win the competition in 2009 and married in 2012.
Sale is an advocate for special needs and sits on the national board for Special Olympics and works with fellow Olympian Mark Tewksbury on the Champions Network, a group that spreads the positive word of Special Olympics.
