Nancy Kerrigan assaulted, Jan. 6, 1994

NewspaperArchive

On Jan. 6, 1994, the U.S. Figure Skating Championships turned violent when a man later tied to rival Tanya Harding attacked figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, striking her right knee with what witnesses described as a club-like object. A Detroit Free Press article published Jan. 8 in The Post-Standard of Syracuse, N.Y., considered the implications for upcoming contests.

    “Detroit police, hunting for the man who attacked skater Nancy Kerrigan, questioned more witnesses Friday and reviewed videotape from the moment before the attack, looking for clues to the man’s identity.

    “Kerrigan, 24, the nation’s top female hope for an Olympic figure skating gold medal next month, was forced to drop out of competition Friday at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and Olympic trials in Detroit.”
