Nancy Kerrigan The Ice Skating Victim Behind That Tonya Harding Attack Was Apparently Obsessed With Selena This Whole Time As Much As We Are

As much as Latinos love to claim Selena Quintanilla as their own, there’s no denying the fact that she and her music were loved by people of all kinds. Kim Kardashian-West, Drake, and one of the world’s most famed ice-skaters included.

The world knows a lot about Nancy Kerrigan. The American actress and former figure skater won bronze medals at the 1992 Winter Olympics, and a silver at the 1994 Winter Olympics and was entered into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame in 2004. Her name, however, has become more commonly associated with an incident that netted international attention in 1994 when she was famously attacked by with police baton by two men hired by her rival Tonya Hardin. In 2017, “I, Tonya” depicted the attack and gave us quite a bit of information about the skater and who she is.

Still, for all of the quick facts the world knows about her old clips of her skating to Selena is by far the best.

In 1997, Kerrigan debuted her routine for Selena’s version of ‘A Boy Like That’

For 1997 Battle of the Sexes, Kerrigan and other women were pitted against men. Each skater performed two routines during the television event broadcasted by FOX. During the flawless routine, Nancy Kerrigan chose to skate to Selena’s “A Boy Like That.”

The song, which was recorded by Selena for the various-artists compilation The Songs of West Side Story album, which created at the time for the benefit for AIDS Project Los Angeles. Its original creation was for the 1957 Broadway musical “West Side Story,” and was written by Leonard Bernstein Stephen Sondheim.

But that wasn’t the only Selena song Kerrigan performed.

A year later in Germany, she played Selena’s 1989 hit “Where Did The Feeling Go”

The track was recorded 1989 by Selena and she sang the song at the Tejano Music Awards in 1991, and at a concert in San Antonio.

Of course the comment sections of both videos are filled with love for the performances.

“What a great song. RIP SELENA QUINTANILLA,” one user wrote in the comments section of the page.

“Amazing I did not know Nancy skated to Selena!” wrote another.

“Love Nancy and I love Selena! Never knew she skated to this song. ❤️???? Te Quiero Mucho, Nancy y Selena”
