On January 6th, 1994, Nancy Kerrigan‘s dreams were put in jeopardy when she was attacked by Shane Stant. Stant, who was hired by Tonya Harding‘s husband to break Kerrigan’s leg, was only able to bruise it.

Harding and Kerrigan were both selected for the 1994 Olympic team and skated in Lillehammer, where Kerrigan ended up with a silver medal and Harding finished eighth. Nice try Tonya!
