Hello Tonya,

Here's some history about you.... when you were a young girl, I use to watch you training on the ice at the Portland clackamas town center; and the Loyd center. I could tell that you were going to be somebody really great. And so you are!

I know you tried boxing...I don't think that was a good choice for you.

However, I know you took a line dance class through Ann Fore, I wish you could of look into that further. Because with your background in ice skating, you could of become a world class country western dancer...

The Randy Schotts Portland dance festival is coming up pretty soon.

portlanddancefestival.com www.ucwdcworlds.com

I traveled the dance circuit for years. And I have made many dance friends.

Best wishes

Cowboy Dan

You were an outstanding and inspirational athlete, a brilliant skater. I believe you would have won the gold but for all the distractions of that time. I was rooting for you at the time. I believed then and now that your then boyfriend and his idiot cohorts were dishonest in testifying and sold you out. The DA let them cut a deal for their knowingly bogus testimony. I know I'm not telling you anything you don't know, but wanted you to know I believe you were treated unfairly. Banning you from the rink was outrageous and hypocritical.

If it is any comfort to you, I believe you are a good person who was caught in a bad situation. Some greater measure of consideration, understanding, and loyalty should have been given you by those who had that responsibility. I wish you happiness, and may God bless you.

I have tried to follow you for years, Tonya, and I want to say how much I enjoyed watching you skate--you were the best! You got a bum rap, Tonya, and I am sorry for you for that.

It seems like whenever I go anywhere here in Oregon I am searching you out. I hope to run into you somewhere, sometime so I can shake your hand or give you a hug. You remind me of my oldest daughter so much.

Good wishes to you forever girl and remember that you are loved.

Tonya, I wanted to tell you that I really admire you. You succeed in a world where most other skaters are more privileged. With all the obstacles you had, you still became the best female skater in the world. I can only imagine how it ripped your heart out that they took away what you loved the most, which is skating. But you didn't even let that stop you. You kept marching on against the media negativity and you keep knocking down barriers. I really admire you and would love to met you someday. cloepp@gmail.com

Dear Tonya,

I remember watching you skate. It was majestic! I was in total awe every time you took to the air to spin around in circles. I liked you more than Nancy Kerrigan. I think you could have won without all of the other ballyhoo cooked up by that greaser you were dating. It's a shame you have been banned. Maybe when you come to Canada (if you are allowed to cross the border) we can party. Let me know.

I watched the 30 for 30 special and it brought back a lot of memories. I always believed you were innocent and I know all the media attention affected your performance at the Olympics. The one thing that impressed me the most is how you were able to come from a modest background and make it in a "rich girl's" sport. I would love to have you as a motivational speaker. You are a special lady!

But im writing after seeing Netflix'es surprising expository? of you. Yep!!! bacck then I just knew! I knew!!! it back then yrs ago still the ex he chose it all duh Tonya.

I saw, met you at the bone radio station- 1077 fm San Francisco [you were boxing]Hard rock cafe,I was on the station briefly then.

**But why did you? really why? cave in to the asses, all that you say im single wasn't various times,but now for awhile.. now following Christ,so is harder to meet a true non getting physical guy unless married Christian. my ex ug so called"...fiance was is I mean lol a sociopath. love to warn all women**if can. Duh of course, im not a wimpy woman,and like you endure,and know whats true' whats not my ex slightly similar also as yours. Tony Sanchez in Milpitas. So, about you;- They're fricken lost in their own false misconceptions and judgements.

For me,- So he is a sociopath not angry wimpy type lol.... a lot of compilations and friends!! know his assinine lies,changes,shocks,taking from me.... He still as he said he would and I ve seen him honks as drives the next street over at times.ewww I haven't didn't have his trailer trash background. mine leave it to beaver old fashioned to laughs..... family unit love blessed but I still fel,t feel I want sigh... to be known so loved for me from someone new. old days id m geeez someday yes I can relate other ways..... Ex's no respect shown so he doesn't give it and to himself... Tony Sanchez Milp.

Hi,

I have been a fan of Tonya Harding since I was a little girl and I would like to say that I think it is ridiculous that alleged involvement in a scandal banned her from the sport she made famous for my generation in this country. Meanwhile, rampart abuse of women, animals and all kinds of violence has proven to be carried out by other sports figures and they are allowed to continue their sport.

I love you, Tonya. Small town, hardworking girl who made her way. I think you're effing hilarious on the show World's Dumbest. I watched your 30 for 30 documentary three times. I was fascinated by everything you went through and overcame and how you've ended up such a chilled out, kind, wise person. :)

You probably have a million folks who have come forward to support you or simply ask for friendship with you. You have also probably found those who are sincere in what they request and those who are simply game players. Nowadays it is almost impossible to tell who you can trust. I am writing to add my name to your list of folks who would like to be numbered amongst your friends. Should you decide to take the risk of connecting with me at nitro4me74@hotmail.com that would be special

I live in Canada and am not into game playing or wasting anybody's time here. I just respectfully would like to communicate true stories about life with you. No strings, no expectations, no hidden agenda.

Just a friend you could learn to count on, share with and trust. You have my sincere apologies if this has in any way offended you or intruded upon your private space. The intention is one of legitimate "caring".

God Bless

Tonya, I just saw the documentary on your life story, and I see many parallels between you and I. Predominantly, I would would say that we are two strong women who 'raised ourselves.' What happens when a person has no one to teach them even the basic social skills is that they and I am speaking of myself, so I will change to that context, I learned everything by making mistakes, picking myself up by my bootstraps and trying again. I was in my fifties before I realized that my pattern wasis okay. What else can be expected of children who were never modeled how to do the simplest of tasks, even telling the truth. My family was immersed in secrets and though I didn't consider it lying, when I didn't share what happened in our home, I was building an unhealthy life skill and coping mechanism. I have been fortunate, as I have broken out of my white-trash background, but I don't fit into what I call suburbia. It is really a culture of phoneys. What I like about you is that you are real. Any holding back is due to being hurt and fear. Anyhow, I enjoyed watching the special on your life. I was wondering if you would have any interest in working with me to write a graphic novel about your life? I live in West Linn, Oregon and would love to meet you. You can contact me at mitzboys@gmail.com. No worries if I seem like another person on the take, you have every right to be apprehensive. I too, am cautious about people's intentions. All the best, only by grace, Julie

Tonya,

I just saw the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary 'Gold'. Watching the videos about your hard upbringing was nothing short of heartbreaking for me to watch. I was just a child when the the Nancy Kerrigan situation went down and I just thought you were a punchline to a joke. But now with age, I can see that wasn't true. You are such a strong person and I am nothing but impressed with you and who you've become.

Rest assured, I won't be laughing at Tonya Harding anymore and if others saw this documentary they wouldn't either, if they had a conscious.

Best of luck to you in the future.

I disagree with the notion that the American Media destroyed Tonya Harding's future. Tonya was an extremely talented figure-skater who was literally on the cusp of greatness (on the way to becoming a World Champion of figure-skating), before she destroyed her own future by her involvement in an incident that resulted in physical injury and the forcible removal of a rival figure-skating competitor. She clearly knew about it, and was involved in the masterminding of the assault on Nancy Kerrigan.

It's good that Tonya's finally moved on with her llfe and that she and Nancy Kerrigan have made up, but please bear in mind that Tonya, and only Tonya herself, destroyed her career by her own actions and behaviors.

Hi Tonya,

I just finished watching the Price of Gold movie and would just like to say that you are truly a woman of steel. I do not know if I could maintain my sanity with the media the way that you did. Nancy Kerrigan comes across arrogant and although she can be credited for not being as mean as someone might be if that happened in these days, she could have given you the benefit of the doubt.

It's a shock no one hit her in the leg before your ex husband the way she carries herself so arrogantly.

I just wanted to say I admire your strength and hope everything in your life is going well for you. Such a fighter you are. :)

Hey there. You have been and always will be a champion. It is my belief you were railroaded and a victim of ruthless media spin doctoring. They sensationalized the whole thing and ultimately only contributed to embarrassing America. Watching you skate was to see perfection and ultimate athleticism.

I am glad you found happiness and satisfaction after enduring so much negativity.

Hi Tonya, I watched your career over the years and while your talent is quite impressive it is your strength I admire the most. You didn't fit the cookie cutter design, neither did I. Neither did most of us. While "they" wanted perfection, we knew you were perfectly fine. It doesn't matter if you had anything to do with what your cowardly husband accused you of. You were misguided and probably too trustful of those around you. Tonya, if people knew how you grew up and what you had to fight, I think you would haven't gotten gold for that alone. I encourage everyone to watch your documentary on Netflix. It is truly impressive. Thank you and please don't hide, tell your story how you overcame and overcame and overcame again. You give me hope to go on after tragedies have ravaged my life. Please never keep silent!!

I believed this to be true way back when that manipulator screwed you over big time, subsequently destroying your life!!!!

Well, when the freakn dumb Americans view television, those A-holes believe everything the see and hear to be the truth!!!!

One more thing to add from my last message:

Are you coaching ice skaters? Is there any way you could appeal the USFSA's decision of so long ago so that you could skate again? You have so much support. I would sign a petition. I am just one person, but there are so many others who love you, believe in you and are inspired by you.

Forgive me if this is not something you want. It may just be a bad memory that you left behind and if so I am sorry. Either way, Tonya, you are so beautiful and amazing. I am in awe at your strength.

I watched the TV interview with you and I was inspired. I suffer from Anxiety, Sever Depression and have Asperger’s. People have laughed at my expense my whole life and I’ve had to fight for where I am career wise. Recently, I was penalized financially because certain coworkers find it difficult to work with me and assigned mal intent where none was intended. I believe I would have been fired if it wasn’t for the fact that I am good at my job. I’ve know life isn’t fair but it doesn’t make it easy. I’ve by no means had to face life challenges as difficult as yours but I can relate to the feeling of having to fight for what you want. You were dealt a terrible hand of cards but you didn’t let that deter you from reaching your goals. It was unfair that the ice skating community did not see your plight and reach out and give you a place of refuge. I can relate to others not excepting you for who you are because you are different. They should have celebrated your courage to rise above your situation and helped you magnify your talent. I don’t know what your level of involvement was with Nancy’s incident but I believe you are so fiercely competitive you would never want to win by cheating. I don’t think I could have recovered from having everything I loved ripped from me with no mercy or compassion. I didn’t follow your story afterwards but I would be interested in hearing how you coped and how you got to the point when you decided you were happy with yourself. If you ever decide to write a book I would buy it. I wouldn’t discuss your involvement related to the incident with Nancy but the challenges you faced dealing with the constant hounding of the media. Some might find such a book as whining or seeking for sympathy. I would see it as a book of courage against all odds. As unfair as the world can be I haven’t lost my faith in God. I don’t mean this in a romantic sense but I believe God has always seen you as a princes and he is proud of your undaunted courage. I hope your heart is at peace and I wish you and you family happiness! One of many fans!

I was about 12-14 years old the Kerrigan issue went down, and did not think much of it (granted I was young) until I saw you on World's Dumbest Criminals. Just saw what seems to be a better-examined account of your plight on Netflix, and would like to give you a high-five for rising and enduring, and then appreciating your social interpretation. To be brief, it's nice to see someone that works hard yet is still persecuted under the most extenuating of circumstances. While I've learned never to assume you can never fully describe a person, I respect you more based upon the (what seem to be accurate) facts that I have learned versus the way things were paintededited.

I remember watching the Olympics and not understanding what the story was and what was true and untrue.

I am so glad you did the movie so people can better understand what really happened.

We only heard what the press wanted us to hear and you didn't seem to have any real support to help you communicate to the press properly.

I wish you could have had a safe place to rest during the times when the press was hounding you, that part of the movie seemed the saddest part to me. ( when you were asking them to stop knocking so you could rest)

I think you are a very brave person for going on under such pressure with little support and at such a young age.

How did you did you do it? Most people would have just quit, that alone makes you a star as far as I am concerned.

I hope you find a way to make a lot of money, you deserve it after all you went through. I think a lot of people got rich off your misfortune.

Life can be so unfair and sometimes you cannot do anything about it. Don't let the story go down in history as "maybe she did it" try to clear your name while the people involved are still alive.

Good Luck

I left message few weeks go while ongoing 2014 Winter Olympic. I decide sent you message again.

That was sensational when I saw Tonya Harding special program on 2014 Winter Olympic closing ceremony. That special program was wonderful. You don't have to apologize nobody anymore, because you done enough, and you suffer and lost lot from.

You are the best most gorgeous woman and incredible skill ice-skating ever history of the whole world. Don't kidding yourself you was still the best. You got stuff.

I'm sure you and Nancy Kerrigan both grown up since then, it have been nearly 20 year passed. I am so happy to hear you have wonderful family life with beautiful son.

While I was watching you skate, a pop-up my mind about your life hardship. Info from Google as

As part of the plea bargain, she was also forced to withdraw from the 1994 World Figure Skating Championships and resign from the USFSA stripped her of her 1994 U.S. Championships title and banned her for life from participating in USFSA-run events as either a skater or a coach.

It is very unfair as USFSA and big question about decision. If I am you, I would investigate farther into and if find any unfair decision making on USFSA and put you miserable life experience. You should get some kind compensation for incredible pain and they must owe to you. You consider a legal action against them compensation as hundreds of millions dollar (no matter how much amount money is not enough as compensation what you want through hardship for nearly 20 years ) you lost your lifetime. Yes, Tonya Harding who made figure skating as famous sensational event and incredible amount resource to all media concern including USFSA and anyone involved, except Tonya Harding. It is very unfair, you should and must find sort of negligent there's part. Also least omitting banned practice skate or coach for life.

I strongly urge you to do so, if reverse decision if ever happen, it will be great asset to USA skate community and pass down great skill and knowledge to younger feature generation. Is great gift to mankind.

Tonya Harding, you are best skater in the whole world and no one ever will better than you. You got most precious gift to mankind. Please consider new life as coach. Thank you for reading, I hope you understand my English as second language.

Your lifetime fan and supporter. Kazuhiro

With the NBC special about the Harding-Kerrigan saga that aired during the Sochi 2014 Olympics, I have had a chance to re-visit my feelings about this incident.

What I know for sure:

-No investigation was able to prove you had any involvement in the attack against Nancy -Nancy was able to profit from the publicity about the attack and made millions ever since -You were stripped of everything you had worked for and lost everything.

I remember watching your performance on tv at the 1994 Olympics and being confused about what I should feel about you. Now I realize it was all because of the incessant coverage that was very much biased against you.

With time, I understand that you were given a very raw deal when you were banned from skating. That was uncalled for.

I am sorry for what happened to you and wish you the best. I believe you were a world class skater and admire your energetic style.

Regards.

I fell in love with the magic of figure skating from watching you, growing up in the early 90's. My aunt and I would be speechless in front of your performances on TV. I came from a troubled family and dark past, where the cards haven't always been in my favor. I want to thank you for showing everyone in the world who has been beaten down in life, that they can rise again and shine like a bright star.

Sending love,

OH Tonya, When I was a young girl, you were my hero!I just loved you! My best friend and I were ice skaters (well, wannabees lol)and I was blonde like you, she had black hair like Nancy. I didn't like Nancy as a kid, not to be rude but through the screen I sensed her superiority complex. Anyway, one year for Halloween, I dressed up as you and my best friend dressed as Nancy and we trick or treated in our skates, that's how much I loved you. (damn it hurt too!) I was devastated to see all the things you suffered! I didn't care if you did it or not, I just loved you and I thought of you as being so much like me, like we would have been good friends:) I'm so sorry you went through all that. A few years after the Olympics, my best friends mom took us to the Sea Lion caves in Oregon. And guess who I saw? YOU! I saw you, my hero. And I cried. I was so happy. I wanted to run up to you and hug you and scream like a lunatic but I refrained. I'll never forget it though. I just had to get that out to you. I can't believe how much I feel like that little girl again writing to you, even though I am grown and have 5 children, haha. I don't know if I'm allowed to curse on here, but if I could I would say F*CK those snobby judges, F*CK those haters, and F*CK the media. (and your ex husband too!) This goes out to the one who beat the odds to get where she went, to the one who was a true champion, who overcame abuse and skated through life with an attitude of unbreakable will! You Tonya, are still one of my heroes. I love you! Jackie S. Idaho

When the attack on Ms Kerrigan occurred, it was embarrassing to believe an American Olympic athlete could have been involved. Accordingly, I have always tried to give you a benefit of the doubt. After twenty years, I am still more inclined to give you the benefit of the doubt and to essentially write your participation in the attack as the foolish and immature attack largely attributable to your upbringing and being an immature adult in a highly competitive event. As I watched the interview with Ms. Kerrigan earlier, I decided to google you, and found this website. I was largely impressed that it looked like you went on with your life. It was somewhat disappointing that you did not offer any apology to Ms. Kerrigan. Then I came to your links page, and found the article about the unfortunate loss of Ms. Kerrigan's father and the family drama surrounding his death. And I knew then, you have not gone on with your life. You are still bitter about being implicated in what can be one of the worst examples of sportsmanship in history. For you to build a website, pointedly ignoring Ms. Kerrigan and the attack, then to post a link to such a horrific article (and to nothing else) speaks volumes as to the petty nature of this website and you. It is sad that you refuse to address the situation honestly and openly. For what it's worth, I do not believe You will not grow until you address the attack, your participation and apologize. Good luck Tonya, perhaps one day you can address your actions honestly and put this matter behind you.

I know in my heart that it’s not an accident that your worlds collided on such a high level at it did. The universe has destined you two to meet in such a public, cataclysmic way that no one could ignore the incident – you Ladies are very blessed & fortunate to be given the opportunity to make a huge dent in humanities psychic for resolution–evolution!

You & Nancy must are challenged to work together (now that you are mature women) - too dialogue (privately first) about what & why this happened to you both. It’s really very obvious, once you open you heart; soul; spirit; and mind to the “unique” way this all happened. The universe (Higher power) was at work to connect you to in such a way that you could never unwind from…but could definitely birth “greatness” from!

Both of you ladies are strong survivors (Equals) who were disrespected and treated as if you were in the wrong place at the wrong time. But you weren’t in the wrong place @ the wrong time. The universe had you collide – now make the world better because of it. IT WAS NO ACCIDENT on a Spiritual level.

Bad men with no talent were used to impacted both your lives negatively with little repercussions to them. However, as a testament to you both – you not only survived, but have continued to thrived!! The media did get in the way to make it an antagonist situation – this is the perfect platform to show women solidarity in its highest form!

I saw the media coverage last night of this (Incident with Kerrigan vs Harding) and am outraged that American women and all adults weren’t more sympathetic & supportive of those two talented; powerful; beautiful young ladies. It appears that as a society we just wanted to see an archetypical “Cat Fight” at the expense of those (2) young people at a time in their life when support; respect; and encouragement was what they needed most. What about those guys who actually pulled off this horrendous crime? Why aren’t you updating us on them, and also making sure that guys like that are decommissioned indefinitely. Instead, the media and the Skating Federation really used both Tonya Harding & Nancy Kerrigan in an inappropriate way to get more viewing; and to show there disrespect for women in general. In respect to Nancy Kerrigan, I also noticed that the media turned on her also by calling her a “cry baby” after the damaging injury- crime happened. Go thing it wasn’t any of their daughters huh? Even the clips showing Kerrigan’s remarks when she won silver & at Disneyland were “trivial and still instigating Cattiness. How unfortunate and small-minded. The good news is, it’s not too late to correct the matter. • Tonya Harding became the first U.S. woman to land the jump in competition when she completed it 45 seconds into her free skate at the 1991 U.S. championships. • Only one of two American woman to land a triple axle in US 20th century competition • Tonya Harding must be reinstated in excellent standing into the U.S. Figure Skating Federation – or whatever it’s official name is.

Hi Tonya,

You are beautiful; strong; intelligent; loving; talented, etc. etc,and you're an awesome modern day role-model girls and boys!!!

You should definitely consider becoming a Skating coach. I know many people would bring there children to you for training. I definitely would! : )

Tonya, what you don't understand is that you're mentally ill. What you seem unable to understand is that YOU created ALL of the problems that surrounded you, and that in spite of not wanting to, your demeanor and actions mirror your mother as many abuse victims do. What you also seem unable to understand is that had you behaved like a decent, upstanding girl you COULD HAVE represented figure skating, your country and yourself and family well instead of creating and experiencing the mess you did. You were and are trailer trash. You were given the opportunity to leave that behind but instead elected to drag the entire world, including a completely innocent Nancy Kerrigan down to your level. You continue to lie and make excuses instead of truly leaving your past behind you: eg you're STILL the same Tonya Harding. Nancy showed who she was and what she was capable of - and so did you.

I was deeply disappointed after watching the NBC interviews of you and Nancy. Nancy showed a lot of compassion for you and what you went through and all I can remember from hearing your side was " she isn't worth it". This was the chance to change some minds out there about your reputation and by not caring you reinforced what people already thought about you 20 years ago. If you showed any compassion for Nancy at all you would have changed my opinion of you. I'm not talking about admission of guilt, either. It must have been hard going through all that back then but you did it with a smile on your face in every clip NBC showed about the media following you all over. It's just my opinion and I am one person but you could have changed lots of minds about you just by how you carried yourself and the lack of respect you showed Nancy and Mary Carillo. I wish you good luck from a 2 time Olympics volunteer!

I hope that Tonya will consider taking on some coaching. Despite the past scandal, she has a lot of talent and know-how that the next generation of skaters would appreciate having. I think most parents would look past the old question mark on her career if they could have someone who made it to the Olympics coaching their kids.

you and nancy have alot in common. among other things, the media treated you both badly. tonya, your mother was emotionally abusive even if, as you say, she tried her best. why dont you shock everyone and use the manipulative media against themselves. I think you and nancy could work tohether to expose what emotional abuse does and how it ripples out to affect others. that would really give people and the media something to be shocked about. gawk and shock....you would end up giving a voice to violess victims. why not use the media and the public's obsession with gossip to a good end and talk about something no one wants to talk about. emotional violence is invisible so ppl love to blame the victim just cuz they can. people who are indifferent when you go for help is even worse. even psychologists turn a blind eye. you both should be considered chamipions just for getting to the olympics whatever your hurdles. emotional violence is like bullying.

It would be nice if Nancy and you could come together as mature women; and start none for profit charity ice skating programs nation wide for young girls in under privileged neighborhoods who have lost their fathers. Especially since both you ladies lost your fathers. Both you ladies are strong survivors who were in the wrong place at the wrong and had bad men with no talent impact both your lives; but you both survived and thrived. Don't let bad men keep you ladies apart because then they win. You ladies could use your drive, discipline, and talents to stop young under privileged womengirls without fathers from having bad men impact their lives. Tonya could coach the girls in house as a free lance skating teacher; and Nancy could take the ladies to the Skating Tournaments. I think God has a purpose for you ladies to work together and teach young ladies the love and forgiveness of Christ and protect young ladies from having baf men impact their lives; because they dont have their fathers.

My daughter is an adult skater now. When we first got involved in skating, I was pretty skeptical when I saw the sport was controlled by big money. I have a degree in music, I tried to compete in the world of concert pianists. Big money there too. Lessons cost big money, sponsorships are hidden. So we packed up and went to Colorado Springs just to get a closer look. I sat around and watched and she skated. I made it my business to find out what wI as going on. When a former gold medalist approached me, he confided some valuable information. He said "Don't give them your money, they are looking for a half-million dollar investment before they will sponsor you." I didn't have half a million, but we kept skating the rinks and talking. We got hit up for some pretty big money. Then I noticed some judges standing around the rink, and one of the parents told me "they pick the winners ahead of time." So all these people who spend money on their kids - are just going to run into some network of judges? So I went over to the Olympic Training Center and had a chat with the Olympic Committee. I expressed my concerns, and they said "Well, why don't you take your daughter and go skate for another country? Lots of atheletes leave the US and compete for other countries."

What's the point here? I expressed my opinion to the head of the USFSA, and I contacted Christine Brennan. She phoned my home, and she was basically curt. She ran with the information, and we packed up and went home. My daughter quit skating - she skates for her own benefit now. I can believe that Tonya ran up against the machine in Colorado Springs, and she's right, she couldn't do anything to please them. They make up their minds about the marketability of a skater, and whether they're well liked. Its a lot like the symphony and opera world.

I actually saw Tonya skate, pretty spectacular jumps. I also worked for criminal investigators. I'm a paralegal. I worked on a lot of white collar crime cases. I think the ban from skating is stupid, given the corruption and big money that influences the sport. And I would like to see Christine Brennan on a pair of skates. The only news we get about skating comes form a very close group of skating insiders, like they're the big experts. So sick of hearing it. Sick of it all.
