 Nancy Kerrigan Biography

Nancy began skating when she was about six, playing hockey with her brothers near their home outside of Boston. They say she more than held her own against a team of boys, determined to prove her skills. As she progressed up the competitive ladder, she was one of the few skaters whose technical skills and artistic presentation blended equally into a comprehensive, unique style.

Motivated by her dream, and her family's financial sacrifices, Kerrigan poured herself into her practices, rising at 4 a.m. each morning to attend training before her classes at Stoneham High School. After high school, Kerrigan enrolled in Emmanuel College, near her Stoneham home, where she majored in business. But Kerrigan hadn't abandoned her Olympic dreams, and only a year into her bachelor's degree, she entered and won the National Collegiate Championships. Months later, she took home a bronze medal at the U.S. Olympic Festival. In the 1992 season, Kerrigan again improved on her placement at the previous year's national championships by finishing second. She won a bronze medal (Yamaguchi took the gold) in the 1992 Winter Olympics and earned the silver medal at the 1992 World Championships.

On January 6, 1994 at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit, Kerrigan gained international fame far beyond the skating world. As she was walking through a corridor at Cobo Arena immediately after a practice session, Kerrigan was clubbed on the right knee with a police baton by assailant Shane Stant. The assault was planned by rival Tonya Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and co-conspirator Shawn Eckardt.

The Ladies single skating event at the Winter Olympics took place seven weeks after the attack, and Kerrigan skated what she considered to be the best two performances of her life in the short program and free skate. She won the silver medal in the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics at the Hamar Olympic Amphitheatre, finishing second to Oksana Baiul and ahead of Chen Lu, who took the bronze medal as Tonya Harding finished in eighth place.

Kerrigan retired from amateur competition after the Olympics. She appeared in a few professional competitions such as Ice Wars, but focused her career on performing in a variety of ice shows. She has appeared in Champions on Ice, Broadway on Ice, and an ice show adaptation of the musical Footloose, among other productions.

In 2003, Kerrigan became a national spokeswoman for Fight for Sight. Kerrigan was inducted into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 2004.

During the 2010 Winter Olympics, Kerrigan served as a "special correspondent" for Entertainment Tonight.

On March 1, 2017, Kerrigan was revealed as one of the contestants who would compete on season 24 of Dancing with the Stars. She was paired with professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev. Despite receiving higher scores than Bonner Bolton and David Ross, Kerrigan and Chigvintsev were eliminated during a double elimination in the seventh week of the competition.
