Debi Thomas

In an event dominated by white athletes, it took until 1988 for a black participant to medal at the Winter Olympic Games. In fact, over the 22 Winter Olympics that have been held to date, only twelve of the approximately 1,000 medals have been won by black athletes. Debi Thomas was just 20 years old when she broke the mold and took home the bronze medal in figure skating at the 1988 Calgary Olympics. Thomas went on to a medical career but struggled after being diagnosed with a bipolar disorder. Her ground-breaking first, however, remains an unforgettable achievement in the history of elite sports.
