The most ridiculous saga in figure skating begins when Nancy Kerrigan, the champion, is attacked at U.S. Figure Skating Championships at Cobo Arena in Detroit. The leg injury she suffers opens the door for rival Tonya Harding to win and qualify for the Olympics. It would not take long to discover that the man responsible for attacking Kerrigan was connected to Harding, who would be stripped of the medal.
