Jamie Salé is a legendary pairs figure skater and Canadian Olympian and she’ll be in town in February for a special campaign.

Along with her husband David Pelletier, she won a gold medal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, and they held the Word Champion title in 2001.

Salé & Pelletier became a household name in Canada when they performed a flawless program at the 2002 Olympics but were awarded the silver instead of gold. Due to an uncovered judging scandal it was discovered that they were wrongfully given the silver and were then awarded the gold medal in their event.

In 2008 the pair was inducted into the Skate Canada Hall of Fame and in 2009 they were immortalized in the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame.

Jamie’s most recent accomplishment was being the first-ever winner of CBC’s new reality competition series Battle of the Blades along with Craig Simpson.

    Some of my favourite Olympic moments was when snowboarding and BMX were first allowed into the Olympics. Both are favourite sports of mine. There are so many sports and hard-working athletes out there are are just waiting for their sport to make the cut, it was nice to see some more athletes, that are the best in their sport, get the opportunity to compete on the ultimate world stage. 🙂

  2. Katharine says:

    Great contest. Would love to meet her!

  3. Jennifer says:

    My oldest memory of watching the Olympics with my family dates back the 80s, watching Ben Johnson win gold by a mile and then have it taken away…I prefer to just remember the first part! My entire family was sitting around the TV screaming at the top of their lungs!

  4. Sanaz says:

    My favourite Olympic moment would have to be when Jamie and David were handed their well deserved Gold Medal. It proved to the world that no matter what position you are in you could get caught if you start breaking the rules.

  5. Chelsea says:

    I think the whole Ross Rebagliati scandal was one of the most memorable for me. I was in high school here in Vancouver and in our science class I remember we dissected exactly how much marijuana would have been in his body, basically if two classrooms were filled with blood the amount would be the equivalent of a chocolate bar. Will always remember that analogy! And of course how much controversy there was over the fact that it would end up slowing him down, not quite the ‘performance enhancing’ drug the IOC is worried about. Glad he got to keep the Gold!

  6. Michelle says:

    I can remember watching Jane Torvil and Christopher Dean perform “Bolero” in the 1984 Olympics.Just beautiful .

  7. Ariane C says:

    My favourite Olympic moment is actually a pre-Olympic event that was held last year at Whistler: the Intersport FIBT Bobsleigh and Skeleton World Cup. We attended several skeleton and bobsleigh events at a fraction of the cost of the 2010 Olympics and watched world-renowned athletes compete for the Cup.

    This was a truly exciting event, as the Sliding Centre was hosting this inaugural event in order to test the newly-opened venue and present it to the public.

    A word of warning: it gets mighty cold up there once the sun sets; for those visiting the Games next month, dress warmly, especially when it comes to footwear!!

  8. Julie Nicholls says:

    Great giveaway!

  9. Dean says:

    Met Jamie& David outside the rink at their first competition together (Kamloops ’98). I sooo wish we had taken a picture with them but we didn’t want to ” bother ” them.

  10. Ray says:

    my favorite olympic moment will be seeing Serena Ryder perform in Surrey on Feb 14

  11. KF says:

    My favourite Olympic moment: how Elvis Stojko skated through pain and won a silver medal in Nagano. It was obvious from the moment he stepped on the ice that something was wrong — but he is a true athlete and didn’t let that stop him from competing.

  12. Robyn says:

    Wow, there are so many! I vividly remember watching Ross Rebagliati just by coincidence and seeing him win the gold back in 98 and the chaos that ensued. Funny to think it was 12 years ago now!

    But you know what sticks out in my mind? The 1988 Calgary Olympics watching ice skating… Elizabeth Manley for sure, but also Kurt Browning. I think it was the first year I actually paid attention to the Olympics.

  13. Katie says:

    Many Olympic memories … perhaps I should pick a winter Olympics moment, but the first thought that came to my mind was when Donovan Bailey won the 100 m race. I can vividly remember what I was doing that day! It was a thrilling event.

  14. Katherine Chu says:

    Must agree with Sanaz above. I remember watching Jamie and David deliver a flawless long routine, only for the Gold medal to be awarded to Yelena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze of Russia. Everyone watching knew something wasn’t right. I was delighted when they were rightfully awarded their Gold medal once the judging conspiracy was unearthed!

    Would be amazing to meet Jamie as my mom and I loved watching figuring skating pairs when her and David were skating!

  15. Teresa says:

    My favourite Olympics’ moments are every opening ceremonies or anytime a Canadian athlete wins a medal.

  16. Jason says:

    No special moment really pops into my mind. I just love watching all the hockey games.

  17. Jan says:

    It would be really fun to meet family. Thanks for the contest.

  18. Heather says:

    My two favorite Olympic memories are watching Jamie & David skate, and watching Simon Whitfield winning a Gold medal in 2000.

  19. Jan says:

    It would be really fun to meet Jamie. Even though it was a travesty in 2002 when Jamie and David were denied the gold metal they were the real stars.

  20. James Chung says:

    Cool contest 🙂

  21. Janice says:

    Figure skating is my fave!

  22. Ann says:

    A memory: Watching the Olympics with my children and grandchildren. A future memory: Watching the Olympics with my great grandchild.

  23. Chris says:

    My best memory would be the BNL concert during the Salt Lake Olympics when Salé and Pelletier jammed with ’em. That was epic.

  24. Josip says:

    I will never forget when I found out that the 2010 Olympics were going to be taking place in VANCOUVER!

  25. Heather says:

    I figureskated as a child and I love Jamie Sale! This would be a dream to win.

    Greay contest!

  26. I don’t have any memories of the Olympics because I’ve never really been one who got into the Olympics. I’m glad they’re coming to Vancouver because it’s motivating me to get into the Olympic spirit and I’m looking forward to watching them this year

  27. Ruby B says:

    I love watching the opening ceremonies and I am excited to see how Vancouver is going to WOW THE WORLD.

  28. aria says:

    Wish my dad were here to watch the games with me. MMM were watching games with my late father.

  29. pete says:

    Figure skating is my favorite event.

  30. Sheila says:

    I loved the closing ceremonies of the Calgary Olympics, with kd lang singing and all the athletes swarming off their bleachers to dance and celebrate together.

  31. Jen says:

    My favourite Olympic memory is when I went up to the Whistler area Olympic site, where the ski jumping and bobsleigh will be held. It was amazing to see in person, before all of the crowds.

  32. Tamara says:

    My favourite Olympic memory is just watching the pairs figure skating long program! It was especially rewarding to see Salé & Pelletier be rewarded with the gold medal that was rightfully theirs!

  33. Nikki says:

    One of my most vivis memories is watching the pre-skate warm up for the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer. The tension between Tanya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan was obvious. The scandal was at full force at that time and everyone was on the edge of their seats to see who would skate better and if Nancy was fully recovered from her attack. Oh the drama!!!

  34. Bonnie says:

    would have to be the figure skating — such grace!!

  35. Stephanie says:

    My favorite moment would be when Jamie and David won the gold in pairs at last!

  36. Gloria says:

    my favorite part of the olympics are the opening ceremonies !

  37. Areta says:

    I would like to meet her and I love Burt’s Bees products.

  38. Sharon says:

    Favourite olympic moments were had at the Calgary ’88.

  39. Sinful says:

    My favorite Olympic moment will be watching my 8 year sing at the Ozone on Feb 12th as part of her school choir. She is so excited to get her own olympic outfit and asked if she can still wear it after the Olympics are over! I am so proud that she will be a part of this great event and that she will have the memories to cherish.

  40. Xin says:

    Figure skating is great, love the spins and twirls. Very artistic.

  41. KT says:

    I love watching the skiing and snowboarding. Some of my favorite moments are still to come (I know a few people competing in the upcoming event).

  42. Lynn says:

    I’ve always loved watching the march of countries for the opening ceremonies and this year as an olympic volunteer, I get to experience them 1st hand as I will be working at BC Place for the whole duration of the games! Woohoooooooooooo!! I think my favorite olympic moments are yet to come . . . 150 hours of volunteering in 2 weeks (while working full time at my regular job!) should produce many!!

  43. Morgan says:

    The opening ceremonies are what I most like to see for any Olympic year.

  44. Larissa says:


  45. Julie says:

    My favourite Olympic moment was watching Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov complete a flawless free program in Calgary in 1988. I was a very young pairs skater at the time and was overwhelmed by their performance and its perfection. I don’t think I blinked for the entire four-and-a-half minute program. In that moment, I fell in love with figure skating for life.

    That incredible performance is worth another look:

  46. Jason says:

    A lot of people say the cauldron lighting at Barcelona 1992 was one of the best, but I was impressed with the one done for Sydney 2000.

    The Beijing 2008 ceremony has completely exciting and over-the-top…nothing could ever beat that.

    I believe my favourite sports moment would have to be Simon Whitfield winning gold in Sydney. Such an impressive win.

  47. Gary says:

    I enjoy Burt’s Bees products!

  48. Jeff says:

    watching the beijing olympics opening ceremony …. amazing!

  49. Ailly says:

    at gm place when vancouver was announced the winner to host the olympics! 🙂

  50. Robyn says:

    I think my favorite moment would have to be when Michael Phelps won his billionth gold. He was so incredible to watch, my jaw was on the floor!

  51. Vicki Barlow says:

    I have been watching the Olympic games since 1964 and am attending my first games in Vancover with my son this year and I am so excited about everyting. Burt’s Bees are the Bee’s Knees!!


  52. loobo says:

    Terrific contest, would love to win! And any time Canada medals is my favourite Olympic moment 😉

  53. Monica says:

    Great contest! I love watching the figure skating and the hockey games during the Olympics.

  54. Lyndsey says:

    !! Nice gift/prize!!
    A couple favorite Olympic moments have to be when I lived in Calgary during the ’88 Winter Games. I remember dad parking near an overpass in the dark hours of the early a.m. Just as the torch was being run passed us, the sun began show itself and gave rise to a beautiful dawn. Pretty neat for a little 6 year old to see (and remember!)

    Also remember being in Lake Louise and Banff and standing around the bobsled track, waiting patiently for the sleds to speed by, and they did- so fast it was a blur…nice memories!

    Just a side note. In the early to mid nineties David skating with a another partner and they came to skate on PEi…They came to our little town’s rink after we did our annual ice show and I skated with him.

  55. Chris says:

    I’ll have to go with the introduction of snowboarding into the Olympics as my memory.

  56. JMac says:

    I remember so many things… tops:

    -Elizabeth Manley’s free skate in 1988
    -Isabelle Brasseur and Lloyd Eisler short and free skate in 1994
    -Getting up between 4 and 6 am to watch hockey games, etc, live during the Nagano Olympics in 1998
    -The 2002 pairs free skate in Utah — and everyone on my floor (even ‘hockey boys’) complaining that the Canadians hadn’t won
    -The 2002 & 2006 Women’s Hockey Golds!!!! (In 2002 everyone in our Rez poured out into the courtyard – some singing O’Canada, some playing music from the I AM CANADIAN (etc) commercials on the air at the time)
    -and the 2002 Men’s Hockey Gold!! We all cried so hard!! We were so proud!

  57. Wendy says:

    Pairs is my favourite event; David and Jamie my favourite skaters but my fondest Olympic event was way back in the 70’s when someone I knew from our winter club was competing in the Olympics. She had a fashion show to display all the clohing they gave her as a competitor. I found that highly amusing and memorable.

  58. I’m no good at figure skating, but I sure loved watching it.
    The late ’80’s and early ’90’s were when we Canadians really rose to the top in terms of Olympic Figure skating–there was the Brians, and who could forget Liz Manley in Calgary in ’88? Magic.
    I adored Brasseur and Eisler–they were part grace, part crazy daring. No one in the world, as far as I’m concerned, has ever been able to touch their death-defying, jaw-dropping lifts. Elvis, Sale and Pelletier, and Bourne and Kraatz. Who could forget the Shea-crusher?
    Yep, I’ll be watching the figure-skating this year in my home town. I just wish I could afford tickets to see the winner’s exhibition–that would be a dream come true!

  59. Veronica says:

    I was never much of a hockey fan, but nothing ignited my Canadian pride more than watching the Canadians sweep the U.S. for the gold, for both the men’s AND ladie’s teams, in 2002 at the Salt Lake City Olympics. We also ruled the ice in figure skating that year, and judges and bribes aside, Jamie and David got the gold!

  60. samsmom says:

    Whenever “O Canada” is played and the athlete(s) sings along I get teary eyed.
    I LOVE my red mittens!

  61. Tava says:

    my favourite moments happen almost all of the time during the Olympics — I love watching the little backstory pieces right before and event and getting completely wrapped up in it and then being super excited or devasted when good or not so good things happen to the person I just learned about. Like watching skaters fall or execute the jump they’re nervous about.

  62. maria says:

    Sounds like a great prize!!

  63. angela says:

    This would be a nice prize!!!

  64. Richard W says:

    THE greatest moment for me and most hockey fans is watching the 2002 Canadian Mens Ice Hockey team win gold in Salt Lake City!!

  65. wendy says:

    Of all the times i’ve watched the olympics nothing can be as sad as when countries had to bow out because of some strange people who haven’t got a clue on life and think it is a great time to kill people because they want to.We have to be strong in life and the OLYMPICS is a time when the world shows their strength and togetherness as a world that can come together no many what.GOD BLESS THE ALL THE COUNTRIES AND FANS WHO WILL BE THERE AND KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.I will be there and can’t wait to see my first olympic in person all the way fromm Sault Ste Marie On.

  66. vmc says:

    I have very fond memories of the 1988 Calgary Olympics. The Jamaican bobsled team, Eddie Edwards, Matti Nykanaen..those were the days!

  67. Angela Griffin says:

    I used to figure skate and am a big fan of them… I was glued to the tv in 2002!!

  68. Mike Gismondi says:

    My best Olympic memory will be made this year when I’m in Whistler! The men’s hockey gold in 2002 was another good one though!

  69. Jenn says:

    Favourite olympic moments..Michelle Kwan and Tara Lapinski!

  70. Kimm says:

    I have a few favourite moments,

    Being old enough to remember watching the Calgary open ceremonies as well watching bobsledding and speed skating for the 1st time and being hooked.

    Even though I’m not a hockey fan, I still remember when Women’s hockey became a Olympic sport 12 year ago.

    Whenever I see that giant Canada Flag at closing in the crowd.

    Whenever a Canadian is taking part in a sport even if they don’t medal I cheer for them. If they do medal I get teary eyed when I hear our anthem.

  71. Pat says:

    I am so excited about Vancouver hosting the Olympics! I wish I could be there in person but sadly it to expensive for those of us on limited/low income. But you can bet your boots, we’ll be watching them on TV everyday! I’d love to win a chance to meet her, she is a fantastic athlete and is such a nice person!

  72. Penny says:

    My favourite moment is when the medalists are receiving their medals. Three individuals or three teams, through all their devotion to practising day after day after day, realize their goal and receive a medal.

  73. Eric says:

    To meet Jaime Sale! Wow! I am so proud to be a Canadian and for our country to be hosting the 2010 Olympics! Go Canada Go!

  74. Ed says:

    Out of all the events, it’s the hockey I look forward to the most. I absolutely love it and stayed glued to the TV. Go Canada Go!!!!
