Tonya Harding (born November 12, 1970) is a former figure skater from Portland, Oregon. Despite a tough childhood in an unstable family, as well as being plagued by asthma, she became an elite figure skater. She won the U.S. Figure Skating Championships twice and placed second in the 1991 World Championships. She was the second woman, and the first American woman, to complete a triple axel jump in competition. She became notorious for her part in the conspiracy to harm competitor Nancy Kerrigan at a practice session during the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
Her then husband leaked the home sex tape from their wedding night after he was implicated in the Nancy Kerrigan assult.
