Margot Robbie (of ‘Suicide Squad) stars in a movie about Tonya Harding- the infamous professional skater, who planned and carried out her attack on, primary nemesis, Nancy Kerrigan.
In 1994, and during the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit that year, she’d hired an assailant to damage Nancy Kerrigan. Kerrigan was hit in her thigh, and withdrew from the championship. Subsequently, Harding won that tournament, in absence of Kerrigan.
However, later on, the rumor of Harding being involved in the assailing, was followed up and proved.
She was then stripped of her 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships medal, plead guilty to charges, and was banned by the United States Figure Skating Association for life.
This movie, as told by the actors, take information primarily from interviews done with Tonya Harding and Jeff Gillooly, then her husband, right after the incident.
