On Jan. 6, 1994, during a practice session for the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit, Kerrigan was clubbed on the right knee with a baton by an assailant. Still, "I, Tonya" is an award-winning film with big stars, glowing reviews and "Oscar buzz", so of course I had to see it, even if the story is all too familiar.
Harding said she wouldn't change a thing about her life. Tonya Harding is no angel, as the film makes clear, but we're also reminded of her grit, determination and accomplishments: The skater was the first woman to execute a triple axel, in 1991.
"I think that many people are the victims of abuse every single day, and can't stand up for themselves", Harding said.
Directed by Craig Gillespie from a screenplay by Steve Rogers, the film is based on what we are told, via on-screen titles, were a series of "irony-free, wildly contradictory, totally true" interviews that Rogers conducted with Harding and her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly (masterfully rendered here by Margot Robbie and Sebastian Stan, in period-perfect makeup, hair and clothes).
They are so hilariously bad as depicted by director Craig Gillespie (the criminally underrated "Lars and the Real Girl") that you should be left with one thought by the end of the film: Give the girl a break. "But it's my faith in myself and in my father that comes back to me and makes me get back up off my butt and be something worth being proud of", she said.
Harding, recently admitted to having knowledge of the attack, in the TV documentary Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story.
She was sentenced to three years of supervised probation, 500 hours of community service, a $100,00 state find and was instructed to set up a $50,000 fund to benefit the Special Olympics.
To this, Harding responded that it is because Morgan would not let her finish her statement. She was also ordered to surrender her membership to the United States Figure Skating Association, who would end up barring her for life.
But it wasn't long before Piers began asking about the well publicised assault, arranged by her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, which appeared to rattle Tonya somewhat. In Tonya's ABC interview she simply said of Nancy, "She's got her life". January 31, 1994: Nike pledges $25,000 to help keep Harding in the Olympics. Vincent Almavy, AFP U.S. figure skater Tonya Harding reads from a prepared text during a press conference. "She still loves to skate and that was something that really was in her blood". In another scene, she bribes a spectator at one of Tonya's competitions to heckle the young athlete, believing that her daughter will skate better if she is under pressure. Kerrigan was able to compete in the Olympics, however, and won silver, while Harding finished eighth.
