Tonya Harding Bio – 2018 Update
Born in Portland, Oregon, Tonya Harding took her first steps on the ice at the age of three. Later becoming a competitive skater, she participated in many US Figure Skating Championships, where she finished among the top five. Continuing to train at the rink, her hard work eventually paid off in 1991, when she became the first woman to land a triple axel in competition. By 1994, she had been selected to be a part of the US team for the Winter Olympics in Norway. As it happened, however, she and her husband at the time, were involved in a hired attack on Nancy Kerrigan (her team’s main competitor), which rendered her unable to compete in the competition. Following the incident, she was effectively banned from the US Figure Skating Association.
What has Tonya Harding been up to since the incident- where is she now in 2018? After retiring from figure skating, the blonde has been out of the spotlight for quite a while. According to reports, she subsequently lived a quiet life in Washington State, where she eventually married Joseph Price in 2010.
