January 6, 1994. It is a day that Nancy Kerrigan will never forget. The American was when, after a training session in the run-up to the U.s. championships of figure skating in Detroit with an iron rod on the knee all. The images, which show how Kerrigan wailing in pain on the ground and repeatedly crying "why? why?" calls, going through marrow and bone.
Kerrigans big rival was Tonya Harding. The American was the second woman in the world who has a triple axel in her practice knew how to handle a jump that only seemed to be reserved to men. At the Olympic Games of 1992 in Albertville handle them just next to the medals and the months after that, she was outclassed by her fellow Kerrigan. But that could Harding not verkroppen. Last year she confessed that she knew that in the run-up to that particular januaridag in 1994 something afoot. Her involvement in the attack continues to the blonde until today to deny it. But what is certain is that Jeff Gillooly, the ex of Harding, and his friend Shawn Eckardt, the plan had planned and one Shane Stant for a sloppy, 6.500 dollar (5.400 euro, red.) had hired for the attack to perform. Stant was eventually got caught, also admitted that he was the perpetrator was, and if eighteen months hum in the prison.
Harding has always maintained that they are not in advance aware of the attack, for the court, she is only sentenced for attempts to the investigation of the attack, to hinder. But, as opposed to ‘ABC News’ did Harding have a remarkable utterance, in an excerpt from a tv documentary, ‘Truth and lies’. “I knew that something was afoot was,” said Harding, without that they ever consented to the assault or concrete knew what would happen. She thought it to be a crazy region. “It was one or two months over the attack. I was to listen and heard them talk about things: ‘Well, maybe we need someone to turn it off so that we are sure that they are in the olympic team, to which I said, " What the hell are you talking? I can skate.’”
