Feb. 24, 2009 — -- Fifteen years after she was involved in one of the most bizarre scandals in sports history, 39-year-old Nancy Kerrigan said she doesn't focus on the infamous incident that captured the world's attention because she is more concerned about being a good mother and wife.

"I just don't think back on all the negativity, because it's such a waste of time," the former Olympian said on "Good Morning America" today. "My life has moved on."

Kerrigan, who nabbed a bronze figure skating medal in Albertville, France, in 1992 and the silver prize in the 1994 Lillehammer, Norway, Olympic Games, focuses on her 8-month-old daughter, Nicole, and two sons, 12-year-old Matthew and 3-year-old Brian, with husband Jerry Solomon, her former agent.

"I'm so proud of myself. It's amazing now because I have a whole different life now," Kerrigan said.

Monday marked the official anniversary of the showdown between Kerrigan and rival Tonya Harding, whose husband was connected to the baton attack that threatened to derail Kerrigan's Olympic dreams and thrust the usually elegant sport of competitive figure skating into an ugly real-life drama that consumed the media and viewers.
