Nancy was brutally attacked before the 1994 Winter Olympics, by Tonya’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and two of his accomplices. Now NBC and ESPN are debuting rivaling documentaries that will force viewers to decide whose side they are on!
Tonya Harding has always been adamant that she knew nothing about her husband, Jeff Gillooly‘s plans to brutally assault Nancy Kerrigan during a practice session before the 1994 Winter Games. Now that it’s the 20th anniversary of what was called the “whack heard round the world,” two very different documentaries will revisit the terror that took place between these two skating stars.
Nancy Kerrigan & Tonya Harding — New Documentaries
ESPN has a new documentary called 30 for 30: The Price of Gold, in which Tonya continues to claim she had no clue that her husband, at the time, was plotting an attack against Nancy. The documentary focuses on Tonya’s life and portrays her more like a victim than the “little barracuda,” that the world referred to her as.
“She’s a princess,” Tonya once said about Nancy. “I’m a piece of crap.”
But NBC will also air a 45-minute documentary, narrated by Mary Carillo, on Feb. 23 This one is said to be very pro-Nancy.
“I trusted Mary and Margaret to really tell the story with my perspective,” Nancy said about the documentary.
Meryl Davis & Charlie Win Gold Medal
Meryl Davis and Charlie White took home the gold medal for ice dancing on Feb. 17, and it was amazing! Not only did they skate beautifully but it was the first time the United States had won a gold medal in ice dancing!
Charlie and Meryl finished with a score of 195.52, about 4.5 points ahead of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir.
We’re so happy for the USA teams in Sochi and proud of everyone’s success!
