Biography[]

Originally retrieved from abc.com
Nancy Kerrigan has been one of America's most recognizable sports icons for over twenty years. Her rise to competing at a national level began when she placed third at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, allowing her to qualify for the 1991 World Championships, where she won the bronze medal as part of an American sweep. In 1992 she earned a bronze medal in the Albertville Winter Olympics and the silver medal at the 1992 World Championships. In 1993 Kerrigan became the United States Ladies Champion and followed that up with her historic silver medal performance at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics.

Along the way, Kerrigan became known for her groundbreaking fashion on the ice, teaming up with Vera Wang and others to create some of the most memorable skating outfits in the history of the sport.

The Nancy Kerrigan Foundation has raised significant funds for the vision impaired in honor of her legally blind mother, and she has been recognized for her excellence on and off the ice (US Figure Skating Hall of Fame, Mother's Day Foundation Mother of the Year, New England Sports Hall of Fame). More recently, Kerrigan has focused on her family (three children, ages 8, 11 and 19), choreography ("Halloween on Ice," "Skate Niagara," "Bryant Park Holiday Show") and executive produced the documentary, Why Don't You Lose 5 Pounds, which examines the silent epidemic of eating disorders in sports.
