Tonya Harding's professional skating debut.

October 18 & 19, 1999

With a near perfect performance on the second night of competition, Tonya leapt into second place in her return to skating after almost five years in exile.
The questions have been answered.
Can she still skate?   You bet she can!
Would the other skaters accept her?   They definitely did!
Would the crowd accept her?
Standing ovations before and after her performance answered that question!    

The competitors and their placings:
1st Surya Bonaly
2nd Tonya Harding
3rd Rory Burghart
4th Tonia Kwiatkowski
5th Liz Manley

Linda Lewis shares the experience of her trip to Huntington.

Photos from the Huntington competition
will be posted soon.

A message from Tonya to all her fans.

Pro skater Elizabeth Manley welcomes a happy Tonya back to skating.
Liz, you are one first class lady!
