The 50 Ugliest Moments in Sports

49 of 50

Tonya Harding

The nastiest moment in figure skating history came in 1994 when former figure skating star Tonya Harding orchestrated an attack on rival competitor Nancy Kerrigan. Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and bodyguard, Shawn Eckardt, hired Shane Stant to attack Kerrigan during a practice session for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit. Stant struck Kerrigan in the thigh with a pipe, forcing her to withdraw from the championship. Harding went on to win the event, but after several investigations linked her to the attack, Harding was stripped of the 1994 title and banned for life by the USFSA. (AP Photo/John Gress)
