Nancy Kerrigan Joins NBC’s OIympics Coverage

Former Skating Medalist Named Analyst 20 Years After Infamous Tonya Harding Attack

Twenty years after her infamous wounding at the hands of Tonya Harding’s henchman, Nancy Kerrigan is returning to the Winter Olympics. Instead of hitting the ice, the two-time Olympic medalist will serve as a figure skating analyst for NBC’s Olympics coverage in Sochi, Russia.

In addition to NBC and NBCSN, Kerrigan will appear on numerous NBCUniversal shows, including “Today” and “Access Hollywood” as well as on E! She worked as a correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight” at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and hosted “Nancy Kerrigan’s World of Skating” on CN8 (now the Comcast Network).

Following her assault at the 1994 U.S. Nationals (a friend of Harding’s ex-husband hit Kerrigan’s leg with a baton) a year after winning the gold, Kerrigan went on to nab silver at the Winter Olympics in Lillehammer. She became the first U.S. woman in over 40 years to win figure skating medals in consecutive Games. Kerrigan had also won the bronze at the 1992 Olympics in Albertville. She retired later that year and was inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 2004.

The Olympics begin on Feb. 6.
