Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode is based on the Tonya Harding case. In January of 1994, Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was attacked and hit hard in the knee. Harding, her prime competition was suspected of the crime but denied any involvement. Weeks later, Harding admitted her involvement in exchange for a plea bargain where she served no jail time. Also charged were Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt, Shane Stant and Derrick Smith. Harding began a new career as a boxer in the 2000s.
