    Nancy Kerrigan has been one of America's most recognizable sports icons for over 20 years. Her 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.

    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). More recently, Kerrigan has focused on her family (three children, ages 8, 11 and 19), choreography ("Halloween on Ice," "Skate Niagara," "Bryant Park Holiday Show") and is currently executive producing the upcoming documentary Why Don't You Lose 5 lbs, which examines the silent epidemic of eating disorders in sports.

    Artem Chigvintsev

    Originally from Russia, dancing has taken Artem all over the world. In 2010, Artem made his professional dancing debut on the original UK version of Dancing with the Stars, Strictly Come Dancing. Paired with Kara Tointon, they went on to win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy, making Artem one of the first professionals to win the series as a first-time Pro.

    Additionally, Artem was one of the choreographers on the British second series of So You Think You Can Dance and a finalist on SYTYCD in the US. In 2014, Artem joined the troupe on Dancing with the Stars and then partnered with Lea Thompson in Season 19.

    I'm looking forward to seeing her compete. I met her once and she is a very gracious lady.

    I'm anxious to watch Nancy, too. She's always been such a graceful skater!

    She lives a few towns from me. I remember her for her whininess, and horsey (not very graceful) skating style.

    I'm not sure I know who the true Nancy is. The person I've seen skate doesn't match up to the person I've seen in news stories. Recently she was on a gymnastics skating special with her children. She seemed like a regular mom with regular children. Nothing out of the ordinary and certainly not someone who is troubled.

    If I watch this season of DWTS, hopefully it will help me separate fact from fiction. I'd like to think she's every bit as lovely as I originally thought she was.

    I always admired her since she appeared to have come from very ordinary circumstances. I smiled when I saw that she teamed with Vera Wang as she got deeper into skating for her costumes. I am pretty sure that at the beginning, her costumes were homemade because of the money concerns

    I have never been a fan, she has always seemed snooty to me. I guess we will see how she really is.
