Tonya Harding vs. Nancy Kerrigan
In 1994, figure skater Tonya Harding lost her entire mind. She hired a man to break opponent Nancy Kerrigan’s leg at her U.S. Figure Skating Championships practice in Massachusetts. The man was unsuccessful in his attempt so he followed her to the actual championships in Detroit and used a police baton to, again, break her leg. Her leg wasn’t broken but it was bruised and Kerrigan had to pull out of the championship. Harding won that competition and they were both selected to the 1994 Olympics team. Harding was initially removed because of her involvement but after some legal threatening, she was reinstated to the team. It didn’t matter though because she placed 8th while Nancy won the silver medal.
