Tonya Harding spotted ... sort ofNAGANO, Japan (AP) -- Could it be ... Tonya Harding at the Olympic ice skating venue?
No, the bad girl of the 1994 Games wasn't really at the White Ring arena Tuesday night for the pairs finals.
But two Portland, Ore., radio disc jockeys had a Harding look-alike doll with them in the crowd. Dan Clark and John Murphy dressed the doll in a blue velvet skating outfit and used a photocopy of Harding for the face. Then they stuffed a cigarette in her mouth.
Behind the doll was a sign that read "Shrine to Tonya Harding."
At one point, it was thrown into the "kiss and cry" area, and held by Igor Marchenco and Evgenia Filonenko.
