Nancy Kerrigan, the 1994 Olympic silver medalist and 1992 Olympic bronze medalist, is perhaps better known for the 1994 attack orchestrated on her by the ex-husband of one of her competitors, Tony Harding. Kerrigan was clubbed on the knee during a practice round on the eve of the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit, Mich., on Jan. 6, 1994. She was forced to drop out of the competition, which Harding won two days later.
