Biography

Dubreuil was born in Montreal, Quebec. When she was five, she asked for skating lessons for her birthday and her grandmother gave her skates as a present.[1] She took up ice dancing at the age of ten.[1]

Competing with Bruno Yvars, she won the bronze medal at 1990 Junior Worlds.[1] She teamed up with Patrice Lauzon in 1995 and they placed 6th at their first Canadian Championships.

They captured the gold medal at the Canadian National Championships five times and competed at the Winter Olympics twice. However, they had to withdraw from the 2006 Winter Olympics after she suffered an injury from a fall during a lift attempt at the end of a program that required Lauzon to carry her off the ice afterward. They recovered to win the silver medal at the 2006 World Championships in Calgary. They started out the next season strongly by winning the Skate Canada and NHK Trophy events, qualifying them for the Grand Prix Final. They ended up with a silver medal in the Grand Prix Final and ended their season on a strong note, capturing their second consecutive silver medal at the 2007 World Championships.

Dubreuil & Lauzon took the 2007-2008 season off and skated in ice shows. They announced their retirement from competitive skating on May 20, 2008.,[2] and they married in August 2008. [1] On December 24th, 2010, Dubreuil gave birth to a little girl, Billie-Rose.[3]

Dubreuil appears on the CBC Television series Battle of the Blades, where female figure skaters are paired with retired ice hockey players in a figure skating competition. She and her season 1 partner, Stéphane Richer finished in third place. She took season 2 off because she was pregnant, and later gave birth to her first child, daughter Billie-Rose. Dubreuil returned for the third season of the show, and is currently paired with Bryan Berard.[4]
