Anytime I get even the slightest injury, I fall to the ground clutching the injury and scream, “Whyyyy? Whyyyy? WHYYYY?”

Of course, that’s because I was at an impressionable age when U.S. figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was caught on tape clutching her leg after someone had hit her with a baton. The 1994 incident immediately became the subject of intense public fascination.

Even kids who weren’t alive back then remember the burgeoning rivalry between Kerrigan and another skater, Tonya Harding, and somewhere in our collective consciousness we assume Harding was somehow to blame. 

It was one of the most dramatic moments in live television when Kerrigan was able to recover and both skaters took to the Olympic ice later that year. 

But while Harding tends to take much of the blame in popular culture, who actually committed the assault?
