BBC Sport looks back at the fierce rivalry between American figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding during the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer.
On 6 January 1994, Kerrigan was clubbed on her right knee with a metal baton after a practice session before the US National Championships. It emerged that the assault was a conspiracy hatched by Jeff Gillooly, the former husband of Tonya Harding - Kerrigan's ice dance rival.
Kerrigan recovered in time for the 1994 Games and secured a silver medal behind Oksana Baiul of Ukraine, while Harding finished eighth.
