Criminal Justice Quote: Upcoming Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan Sports/Crime Documentary

     Twenty years ago, Tonya Harding became a household name after she was implicated in the "whack heard around the world" on her figure skating USA teammate, Nancy Kerrigan. To this day, there may not be a bigger scandal in modern sports history.

     Now, two decades later, the scandal is the focus of ESPN's latest documentary in the network's "30 for 30" series. "The Price of Gold" opens with Nancy Kerrigan shrieking through tears, "Why me? Why?" after a man (who we all now know was a friend of Harding's ex-husband) kidnapped her after a practice prior to the January 6, 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships….

     "The Price of Gold" airs on January 16 at 9PM on ESPN.

  1. While Nancy Kerrigan's father died and in the same month, one Harding from Colorado had died and while Nancy Kerrigan was picked for the dancing show, yet another Harding from Colorado, this time Harding's brother died of a heart attack.
