I return from maternity leave with a photo (above) of the reason(s) why I have -- and probably will continue to be -- busy this festive skating season (a great, big thank you to everyone who sent their good wishes on the birth of Aries Camille), as well as a question to get people thinking... and talking.
When 1987 World Champion Debi Thomas appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show several years back, Oprah introduced her as "the only woman of color to win an Olympic medal in figure skating."
If that's true, where does it leave Kristi Yamaguchi? And Midori Ito? And Chen Lu? And Michelle Kwan? And... well, you get the picture?
Was Oprah correct in her categorization?
Let me know what you think!
