Debbie Knox

DOB: 26.09.68
Lives: Lochgelly, Scotland
Occupation: Customer services rep
Previous Olympics: 1992 demonstration event

Curling - women's team

Debbie Knox was third player and deputy skip in the team which won curling gold at Salt Lake City.

She was one of the few members of the British squad to have previous Olympic experience.

The Fife-based player competed at Albertville in 1992 when curling was just a demonstration sport.

She has played at all levels and won gold medals at the 1992 and 1999 Scottish ladies events.

Although listed as alternate, or fifth, in the Olympic programme, the 33-year-old played at third for every game of the Salt Lake City tournament.

She was originally brought in as a reserve, or alternate, but according to coach Mike Hay she was switched to third in order to "help team dynamics".

Born in Dunfermline, she now lives with her partner Scot Sutherland and their five-year-old twin daughters Anna and Beth in Lochgelly.

She is a member of Glenfarg Curling Club and has played in three World Championships - semi-finalist in 2000, finishing 4th with Rhona Martin; 5th in 1992; and 10th - as skip - in 1999.
