I was surprised to see this on our local news last night and then this article in our paper this morning:

Northeast TN & Southwest VA is not exactly a hotbed of skating activity:lol:. I'm going to call the rink later this morning and see if they expect her to be back practicing this week. I would love to take my daugher up to watch.

It's great to have her setting up a practice in our area!

Good for her..

I'm going to the show on Saturday and I'm so excited to see her back on the ice.

Cool!


For the first time in 14 years, Olympic bronze medalist Debi Thomas is lacing up her skates and hitting the ice.
I assume they mean it's been 14 years since she's performed, not 14 years since she's been on the ice?

I've always loved Debi and admire her as much for her off ice accomplishments as her impressive on ice achievements.

I'll be looking forward to seeing her on the broadcast. :) Too bad I missed any chance of seeing skate in person, now that she's no longer in my town. :( Of course, I was unaware of that fact that she was on staff at the hospital here for several years. :slinkaway

When I interviewed her for my podcast last year (http://www.manleywoman.com/episode-30-debi-thomas/), she told me show only skates an average of about once a year, mainly because her family suggests it to her. So I guess she's been on the ice 14 times. :P

I'm glad to read that Debi is skating again. Do any FSU posters plan to attend this show?

Very nice article. I remember all of the drama surrounding Debbie and Katrina
"The Two Carmen's" back in the day. Sounds like it will be a really good show and I am looking forward to reading the reports from the folks who are lucky enough to attend.

How did I not know this about Debi? I grew up in Richlands, where it says that she is working. My parents still live there.

"In addition to winning the bronze medal in the 1988 Winter Games, Thomas was named skating’s World champion in 1986"

Wow - thanks for the link. I will certainly look forward to watching her skate.
