Nancy Kerrigan is attacked by Shane Stant at the US Figure Skating Championships in Detroit. She is hit in the knee with a collapsible baton. Tonya Harding’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly has masterminded the attack with friend Shawn Eckardt. Kerrigan’s cries of “Why? Why? Why?” to her attackers are recorded forever on ESPN’s Sports Century. Her injury will prevent her from taking part in the Olympic trials.
