This figure skater was perhaps best known for the scandalous actions of her ex-husband, who hired someone to injure one of her main competitors, Nancy Kerrigan in 1994. Harding though had many accomplishments, and was a 2-time Olympian, has won the U.S figure skating championship and is one of the
few women to complete a triple axel jump in competition.
After her days on the ice ended she packed on a little weight. This may have led to her new path, boxing. Harding’s slim figure was useful on the ice, but her newfound weight was useful in the ring.
