1992 Albertville Games, 1994 Lillehammer Games
Medal count: One silver, one bronze
Kerrigan placed third when Kristi Yamaguchi won in 1992 and later became U.S. champion after the former gold medalist retired. At those games, her teammate Tonya Harding arrived late and apparently suffered from jet lag, placing fourth. The pair became infamous after one of Harding's ex-husband's friends assaulted Kerrigan following a pre-Olympic training session, hitting her just below the knee. In the next six weeks, Kerrigan recovered and nearly won gold in Lillehammer, finishing second to Oksana Baiul after a 5-4 decision in the free skate portion. Harding finished eighth.
