Nancy Kerrigan        

Two-Time Olympic Medalist & US National Figure Skating Champion

Nancy Kerrigan has been one of America’s most recognizable sports icons for over 25 years.

Kerrigan’s rise to competing at a national level began when she placed 3rd at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, allowing her to qualify for the 1991 World Championships where she won the bronze medal as part of an American sweep.

In 1992, she earned a bronze medal in the Albertville Winter Olympics and the silver medal at the 1992 World Championships. In 1993 Kerrigan became the United States Ladies Champion and followed that up with her historic silver medal performance at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics.

Along the way, Kerrigan became known for her groundbreaking fashion on the ice teaming up with Vera Wang and others to create some of the most memorable skating outfits in the history of the sport.

In addition to her work on the ice, the two time Olympic medalist has regularly appeared on television and movies as an actor (Boy Meets World, Blades of Glory, Saturday Night Live, Skating with Celebrities, Fresh Off the Boat) or commentator (Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Lifetime Network, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, Inside Edition), and is well known for being instrumental in the creation of Halloween on Ice and other figure skating shows.

Kerrigan has been a product endorser (Disney, Revlon, Reebok, Seiko, Campbell’s Soup, Old Navy, Comcast Spotlight), author (Artistry on Ice), motivational speaker and advocate for issues related to infertility.

The Nancy Kerrigan Foundation has raised significant funds for the vision impaired in honor of her legally blind mother and she has been recognized for her excellence on and off the ice (US Figure Skating Hall of Fame, Mother’s Day Foundation Mother of the Year, New England Sports Hall of Fame, Fight for Sight Lifetime Achievement).

More recently, Kerrigan has focused on her family (three children age 13, 16 and 24), choreography (Halloween on Ice, SkateNiagara, Bryant Park Holiday Show) while also appearing on "Dancing With the Stars" in Season 24. Kerrigan is currently executive producing the upcoming documentary “Why Don’t You Lose 5 lbs” which will examine the silent epidemic of eating disorders in sports as well as the feature film Fire and Ice which is being produced by Picturestart. Kerrigan was on the Advisory Board for the Aurora Games which is an international platform for women in sports and entertainment. She is also still active in working with various companies including Massachusetts based Revise Energy, collaborated with iFIT on new training videos and earlier this year, along with Dolphin Entertainment, participated in the release of a series of NFT’s celebrating women in sports.
