Kay Thomson (born February 18, 1964 in Toronto) was a Canadian figure skater who competed in ladies singles. She won the gold medal at the Canadian Figure Skating Championships three times and competed in the 1984 Winter Olympics.[1]

During her competitive career, Thomson was known[by whom?] as a particularly strong spinner. Her spins included an unusual back layback, performed on the opposite foot than a normal layback spin. Thomson was also one of the first female skaters to regularly include the triple lutz jump in her programs.[citation needed]
