Patrice Lauzon (born November 26, 1975 in Montréal, Québec) is a Canadian ice dancer. With partner and fiancee Marie-France Dubreuil, he is the 2006 & 2007 World silver medalist.

Biography

Lauzon was born in Montreal, Quebec. He began skating with Dubreuil in 1995 after he had split with his previous partner Chantal Lefebvre.

The pair has captured the gold medal at the Canadian National Championships four times and competed at the Winter Olympics twice. They were forced to withdraw from the 2006 Winter Olympics after Dubreuil suffered an injury. They recovered to win the silver medal at the 2006 World Championships in Calgary.

They started out the 2007 season strongly by winning the Skate Canada event and NHK Trophy events, which qualifies them for the Grand Prix Final. They ended their year just as strong, capturing their second consecutive silver medal at the 2007 World Championships in Tokyo.

Dubreuil & Lauzon took the 2007-2008 season off and skated in ice shows. They announced their retirement from competitive skating on May 20, 2008.

Dubreuil & Lauzon were married in August 2008.
