We are approaching the Winter Olympics and ESPN will air tonight (Jan. 16, 9:00 pm EST) a show, “The Price of Gold” which will take the viewer through the elements of the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan episode of Olympic figure skating. For those of you too young to remember what happened in 1994, these two women were attempting to qualify for the Olympic team and Harding was so wrapped up in making the team, she actually hired someone to do physical harm to Kerrigan.
The story was major headlines for months and this program will attempt to show what happened. The Price of Gold is part of ESPN’s “30 for 30” series and I have found the topics covered to be fascinating. You can check out here what has been shown and you can see what I mean.
