Figure Skater and Portland, Oregon native Tonya Harging became notorious
in conjunction with the January 6, 1991 attack on Nancy Kerrigan during a
practice session for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit.  

Following an investigation, the USFSA stripped her of her 1994 U.S.
Championships title and banned her for life from participating in USFSA-
run events as either a skater or a coach.
