What would a figure skating championship in Portland, Ore., be without a mention of Tonya Harding, the local legend who put the ax in triple axel? More specifically a plastic baton wielded by a friend of her then-hubby, Jeff Gillooly, he of wedding night video fame, to kneecap Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 championships. Well, Harding, 35, isn't here. She's on her way to a nightclub outside the City of Brotherly Love for a professional boxing match Wednesday against a woman who agreed to a $1,000 paycheck in return for attempting to beat the tar out of Tonya.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Tonya Harding has been accused of approaching two men about "bumping off" her former husband during their separation last summer after she suspected him of stealing her truck, according to a report published yesterday.The Oregonian, in a report that recounted accusations by two unidentified men at a Portland, Ore., gymnasium, said Harding was "furious" at her husband, Jeff Gillooly, and asked the men, whom she barely knew, to "take him out of the picture altogether."The paper reported that the men were unsure what she had meant by "bumping off" her husband and that they laughed it off. The paper said, however, that they had no doubt she was serious.

Tonya Harding portrays herself as figure skating's toughest little competitor.Raised in a broken home, burdened by meager finances and bouts of asthma, she rose to the top of a glittering, aristocratic sport with a ferocious will and a feisty, blue-collar style.But now, Ms. Harding finds herself engulfed in controversy as her husband and body guard were implicated in the attack on her skating rival, Nancy Kerrigan.Although Ms. Harding, the reigning American champion, was not implicated in the incident that forced Ms. Kerrigan to withdraw from last week's U.S. Figure Skating Championships, her reputation is likely to be clouded.
