    It breaks my heart to think of how many times she must’ve rewound her VHS tape of this triple axel and heard the words “good girl” used in such a loving and adoring and approving way. Those words must have been so validating, having barely ever heard that in her life before.

    There were two classy rinks in the Portland area then - LLoyd Center and Clackamas Towne center - where Tanya skated regularly - but there was also a smaller, lesser known rink - Valley Ice Rink - just a mile or so from the Apt where she lived. I lived in the area as well and used to take my young daughter to the Valley Rink occasionally to watch Tanya train/practice. I can't imagine that Tanya was the instigator of the incident - I think it was her beau's idea all the way.

    That woman came out ready for perfection. Start to finish. Some try to stay within too much of a lock. Harding said she had nothing to lose. She attacked. All out. That's a winner.

    There hasn't been ONE national performance since this matched this. If the American skating industry had ANY brains at ALL they not only would have pulled her ability to skate professionally but she could have been an awesome coach and consultant to up and coming American young skaters when she retired because they could have learned tremendously from her! She gave a performance that had never been seen before at the time (or since) . Also Americans always LOVE the underdog and rags to riches stories. She was the one with the STORY. The industry was so put of sync with how most Americans think they were so stuck on their ice princess image that they misses the idea that Tonya was the one more people related to as fans
    She was equally if not MORE marketable than her competitors at the time. Her skill level when she performed at her best in my opinion surpassed her competitors when they skated at their best. She showed the audience what they haven't seen before .

    My thoughts on Tonya Harding. I was more of a Nicole Bobek fan who I can see a lot of similarities in with Tonya oddly enough in both style and what happened to their careers. I also think while Tonya HAS legitimate fans (rightfully so as I think she was the better skater) I think her rise post-retirement is mostly out of a hatred of Nancy Kerrigan's way she milked with her injury, making Oksana Baiul cry and arrogant personality.
    Overall I prefer the unsung Tonia: Tonia Kwiatkowski

    She has to be one of the strongest jumpers of all time, even many of the gold medal okympians and famous skaters don't have her ability to land such syrong, flawless jumps. So confident too. You can see when skaters are confident in their jumos, it shows.

      Franz Dalucio - there are videos available on you tube entitled "Ladies triple axels" showing the 8 ladies who have landed a triple axel in international competition. Some have ratings by the authors. Midori is rated #1.

  • Laney McNamara

    All the comments saying other skaters can also do triple axels, well of course they can! Coaches have much more education nowadays on how to perfect such skills not to mention the pullys used to get it down while practicing. Nobody will ever be able to take this away from Tonya.

    • sunshine
      sunshine 2 месяца назад

      they may be able to do it, but can they land it when it counts??? They can land it hundred times in training and practice, but the only time it really matters is in that 3 to 4 minute program during competition.... You are right that is her moment!!!! Did you see the movie on her???? It was pretty good..

    • lsr asr

      Laney Rae - as of nov 28 18, only 8 women have landed a triple axel in international competition. only 2 american women, tonya in 1991 and mirai in 2018 at the olympics. for the women a triple axel is still a big deal.

    Say what you want about her, but nobody ever did the triple axel like she could. (This is just what I say when I'm too embarrassed to admit the I, Tonya movie was really good and made me feel sympathetic.)

      Lorelai M - there are videos on youtube of ladies triple axels showing the women who have landed a triple axel in international competition. Watch them. Then give me your opinion as to which lady has the best triple axel. In the videos that have ratings, Midori Ito is rated #1.

    Nancy’s signature move was skating on one foot, while the other leg is in the air. Tonya’s became the triple axel. You just can’t compare them.

    She was a phenomenal skater. Unfortunately, she got dealt a shitty hand of cards. Even though she is short, she is well proportioned & that worked to her advantage. She was strong as hell, determined & I can't imagine where she could have gone had she not had that sociopath for a mother and screwball for a husband. She did this with the constant abuse from her mother & her husband--just imagine if she had supportive people behind her what she could have accomplished.
