Ice dancers Dubreuil and Lauzon announce retirement from competitive skating

Canadian ice dancers Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon announced their retirement from competitive figure skating on Tuesday.

They are best remembered for their romantic routines that helped them win two silver medals at the world figure skating championships in 2006 and '07.

"While it is always a difficult decision for skaters to turn the page on their competitive careers, Patrice and I are proud that we can do so confidently and with no regrets," Dubreuil said in a release. "We have so much to look forward to together, both on the ice and off, and we are anxious to move on to all that the future has in store for us."

Dubreuil and Lauzon, who will marry in August in Montreal, are planning to join the professional skating circuit.

They competed together for 13 years, winning the Canadian national championship five times, but did not skate competitively this past season.
