ESPN 2 Caribbean debuts The Price of Gold on January 30 at 9 p.m. ET

HARDING

A new ESPN Films 30 for 30 documentary, The Price of Gold, will debut on Thursday, January 30, at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN 2 Caribbean. The film tells the story of the controversy behind the attack to Nancy Kerrigan before the 1994 Olympic Games in Norway. The documentary is directed by award-winning filmmaker Nanette Burstein (The Kid Stays in the Picture, American Teen, On the Ropes.)

The world was mesmerized by two athletes in particular at the 1994 Winter Games in Lillehammer – Nancy Kerrigan, the elegant brunette and Tonya Harding, the feisty blonde engulfed in scandal.  Several weeks prior, at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Kerrigan was shockingly clubbed on the right knee by an unknown assailant and left wailing, “Why, why, why?”  As the bizarre “why” mystery unraveled, it was revealed that Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, had plotted the attack with his friends to eliminate Kerrigan from the competition and increase Harding’s chance at a gold medal.  Now two decades later, The Price of Gold takes a fresh look at the worldwide spectacle that ensued with Harding in the center of it all.
