Tonya Harding Meltdown at 1994 Olympics

At the 1994 Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, Tonya Harding experienced skate issues after her original laces broke in the warm up. Without an adequate spare replacement lace, her team ended up using whatever they could find. However, it was not long enough for her to properly tie her skate. An agitated Tonya arrived on the ice late for her performance and she ended up stopping shortly into her routine. She began to melt down as she skated over to the judges and showed them her skate issue. They allowed her to leave the ice to fix her skate and then decided that she could skate at the end of the group instead.
