Tonya Harding to Don Hockey Skates

ByABC News

INDIANAPOLIS, March 9, 2004 -- — Disgraced former U.S. figure skating champion and aspiring boxer Tonya Harding is trying minor league ice hockey next.

The Indianapolis Ice of the Central Hockey League announced Monday that it has signed Harding, 33, to join the team for its game Friday against the Colorado Eagles.

It has been 10 years since Harding's ex-husband hired a hit man to attack rival Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 national championships. Harding has always denied knowledge of the attack, but she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to hinder prosecution, was stripped of her 1994 national title and was banned from amateur figure skating competition.

In 2002, the Ice signed 7-foot-7 former NBA player Manute Bol for a one-game stint with the team, but he never made it on the ice as his feet swelled inside his custom-made skates.
