    ICE SIGNS TONYA HARDING
    AMERICA’S BAD GIRL IN ACTION FRIDAY AS PART OF “GUARANTEED FIGHT NIGHT”

    INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Ice announced today that it has reached an agreement with former figure skating champion, Tonya Harding. Harding will join the Indianapolis Ice as the team takes on the Colorado Eagles this Friday (March 12th) at 7:00 p.m. from the Pepsi Coliseum.

    Harding, 33, burst onto the public scene in 1994 when members of her inner circle were implicated in the attack on rival figure skater Nancy Kerrigan at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Known as a fiery competitor this will not be Harding’s first “fight”. She pummeled Paula Jones in the Fox TV special Celebrity Boxing. She was also sentenced to three days in jail in 2000 after being accused of punching and throwing a hubcap at her boyfriend.

    Harding, who recently embarked on a professional boxing career, is anxious to put her past behind her and move on with her life. As she said in a recent interview with Christine Brennan of USA Today (October 9, 2003), “People can look at me and think whatever they want, but I’m not a quitter,” she says. “I’ve been run over and picked up so many times that it’s like second nature to me now. And it’s OK. I’ve heard it all. I just look forward to living my life the way I want to live it.”

    “We learned last season (with Manute Bol) that it’s easier to teach someone to fight than it is to skate”, said Ice General Manager Larry Linde. “As far as I’m concerned Tonya represents the best of both worlds, she’s already a world class skater and a professional boxer to boot”. “Some people have questioned our toughness this season and I intend to put an end to that this Friday. She certainly gives new meaning to the term “Are You Tough Enough?”

    All fans in attendance on Friday are guaranteed to see some sort of a fight as the Ice winds down its “Are You Tough Enough” season. If a fight does not break out, all fans will receive a free ticket to the team’s last regular season game on Sunday (March 14th) against Colorado at 5:00 pm from the Pepsi Coliseum.

    Tickets for all home games can be purchased at all Ticketmaster locations including select Marsh Supermarkets, Karma Records, select L.S. Ayres and the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Conseco Fieldhouse box offices, or by calling 239-5151 or online at ticketmaster.com. Groups of ten or more can order their tickets through the Ice office by calling 925-4423.
