The skating story of 2016 has to be the return of Deanna Stellato to the world of competitive figure skating. A former Jr. World Silver Medalist Deanna competed against Michelle Kwan, Sasha Cohen and Jennifer Kirk the last time she was an elite skater. Now some 15 plus years later she has teamed up with Nate Bartholomay in Florida training under Coach Jim Peterson.
Her return to competitive skating after a decade and a half may well be the most exciting skating saga in many a year and one I intend to follow closely. Many thanks to Jenny and Dave for bringing us this wonderful interview just 4 days into their partnership. Blazing Blades wishes this new pairs couple much success and great memories ahead. Enjoy! – Pete Murray, Editor.
