Tonya Harding Talks DWTS: 'I'm Glad My Son Will Grow Up Knowing His Mommy Is Not a Cheater' .
Tonya Harding Talks DWTS: ‘I’m Glad My Son Will Grow Up Knowing Mommy Is Not a Cheater’ Tonya Harding will be competing with pro Sasha Farber on 'Dancing With The Stars: Athletes' When Tonya Harding hits the ballroom floor on Dancing with the Stars, she’s only concerned about an audience of one: herself. The former figure-skating Olympian was announced Friday as one of 10 athletes who will compete on the reality dance competition’s Athletes edition, premiering at the end of April. While controversy follows Harding onto the ABC series, she isn’t concerned about viewers’ opinions. “I’m not here to prove anything to anyone except myself,” Harding, 47, told PEOPLE after the cast reveal. Controversy around Harding began in 1994. Seven weeks before the 1994 Olympic Winter Games, Harding’s skating rival, Nancy Kerrigan — who competed on season 24 of DWTS — was clubbed on the knee by an assailant. A man later identified as Shane Stant struck Kerrigan in the knee with a baton after she walked off the ice in January of that year, during practice for the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Though she was injured and briefly withdrew from competition to recuperate, Kerrigan was well enough to compete in the Olympics, where she earned a silver medal in women’s singles while Harding came in eighth.
