EDMONTON — Canadian Olympic figure skaters Jamie Sale and David Pelletier are engaged.
Pelletier surprised Sale with an engagement ring on Christmas Day, sending her on a treasure hunt through their Edmonton home to find it. The couple plan to wed about a year from now.
“We want a winter wedding, before we go on tour,” Sale told Canadian Press yesterday. “We think that would be beautiful.”

Lane, 67, who suffered a stroke nearly three years ago, took part in the ceremonies but did not speak. His son Terry said it was just his father’s second public appearance since the stroke.
He officiated 102 championship fights, including the 1997 heavyweight match in which Mike Tyson bit off a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear.
