She is most widely recognized for being attacked by the husband of rival figure skater, Tonya Harding. Nancy was attacked on January 6, 1994 at the US Figure Skating Championships in Detroit while coming off the ice after a practice session. A man came out of nowhere and struck her in the knee several times with a nightstick. Video tape of the attack's aftermath was seen around the world. It would eventually be discovered that the attack was perpetrated by a man who was hired by Tony Harding's husband at the time Jeff Gillooly. Whether or not Tonya had prior knowledge of the attack has been hotly debated for the last twenty years. Tonya did eventually plead guilty to being an accomplice after the fact for covering up the connection after finding out her husband was involved. Tonya was allowed to compete at the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer but she ended up giving a terrible performance. Nancy on the other hand gave the performance of a lifetime. Just six weeks after being attacked, Nancy gave what most people believed should have been a gold-medal winning routine. She instead earned the silver medal. Tony Harding was subsequently banned from figure skating for life whereas Nancy has gone on to have a very lucrative career. She is still today considered one of the most famous and well-liked winter Olympians of all time.
