Elizabeth Manley and Katarina Witt ice it up during the Olympics

It will undoubtedly be an emotional reunion, as the women will share both the ice and their stories of the Olympic competition in Calgary in 1988.
Billed as the Battle of the Carmens, the event is still remembered as the much anticipated battle between German skater Katarina Witt and American Debi Thomas. But it never happened, as Canadian Elizabeth Manley gave a spectacular performance and stole the silver medal from Thomas ... along with the hearts of Canadians.
Young skaters from the Coquitlam Skating Club will also be on the ice. Katarina Witt is in Vancouver covering the 2010 Olympics for German broadcaster ARD.
