US Olympic Committee in quandary over Tonya Harding

US Olympic Committee in quandary over Tonya Harding

When told about Harding's newest admission, reporter Connie Chung, who previously interviewed Harding and covered the 1994 Olympics, replied, "Unbelievable".

Dody Teachman, who was her coach at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota, still coaches Harding today.

There was something disconcerting watching Oprah drop her powerhouse speech about ending harassment and assault while a convicted felon sat a few feet away.

When asked if she felt relieved at the time that the attack could have kept Kerrigan from competing against her for a spot on the Olympic team, Harding said, "Absolutely not", adding that she never wanted Kerrigan removed from competition.

She skated over the remorse, the personal accountability.

"Thank you so much I appreciate being on your show, but I think I'm going to have to say have a good night", Harding responded.

"I don't want her anywhere near me. And I sincerely wish her the best". When asked about her thoughts on Stevens's recently released song "Tonya Harding", the athlete who now goes by her married name Tonya Price said that she has no interest in it. She is played by Margot Robbie, who is also a producer on the film.

"I, Tonya" documents one of the most infamous scandals in sporting history as it follows the true story of Tonya and her husband when they plotted to attack her rival Nancy Kerrigan before the US Figure Skating Championships in 1994. January 12, 1994: Eckardt confesses to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, implicating Harding, Gillooly, and two of Eckardt's friends. February 1, 1994: Gillooly pleads guilty to racketeering in exchange for a 24-month sentence February 10, 1994: Harding sues U.S. Olympic Committee to stop a planned hearing to discuss whether she should participate in the Olympics.

Now, Balague is back with his latest take on Liverpool's transfer hopes, and it's not one that many fans will appreciate. Jurgen Klopp wants the Guinean dynamo at Liverpool ASAP so that there isn't a gap in the Reds' midfield.

Her husband Jeff, on the other hand, was handed a two-year prison sentence.

Prior to the admission, Harding opened up about her ex-husband's behavior in the days following the attack, saying, "He started acting amusing and I remember asking him, 'What is going on?"

They took their Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan fandom to a whole new level. At left is Kristi Yamaguchi, with third place Nancy Kerrigan at right.

The U.S. Olympic Committee reportedly hopes Harding will withdraw from the team before the Winter Games at Lellehammer, Norway.

Do you remember Tonya Harding? Tonya then in a snide remark said "Well, one thing". "She has a son that she loves dearly". "We talked. We were at an event four years after I was attacked. I'm just busy living my life". Harding was a guest at Sunday's Golden Globes. Harding was undoubtedly surrounded by some bad people for most of her life, and is a wholly sympathetic character in this new version of her life story.

Janney might want to take a look at US and Olympic figure skating records before she says too much more.

"I, Tonya" treats Kerrigan as comic relief; the movie crowd burst out laughing for Kerrigan's brief appearances on screen but my stomach was turning.
