Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding 20 Years Later

Monday, January 13, 2014

Nanette Burstein, director of the ESPN documentary “The Price of Gold,” remembers the worldwide spectacle that erupted 20 years ago, when, weeks before the 1994 Winter Games in Lillehammer, figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed on the right knee by an unknown attacker. It was revealed that figure skater Tonya Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, had planned the attack with his friends to eliminate Kerrigan from the competition and increase Harding’s chance at a gold medal. “The Price of Gold”  premieres January 16, at 9 pm on ESPN.
