That Time Tonya Harding Skated to the 'Jurassic Park' Theme Song
Starting at the Winter Olympics next month, figure skaters will no longer be limited to lyric-free songs. The rule change, which some have already swiftly put into action, could lead to a more modern take on the historically classical sport.
In honor of the new rule change, here’s a throwback to when skaters had to get a little more inventive to inject some pop culture into their performance. In 1994, U.S. figure skater Tonya Harding became embroiled in the sport's most scandalous moment: the attack of her rival Nancy Kerrigan. You can watch all the drama unfold in the awards-season favorite I, Tonya, but before all that, Harding was simply one of the best figure skaters in the world and she needed a T-Rex-sized tune to match her moves.
During that time, Harding creatively used the Jurassic Park theme song for her set -- a performance that also included a dramatic wardrobe controversy when her skate lace broke during the number.
You can watch the '90s glory below, and tune into the upcoming Winter Olympics starting Feb. 9.
