Who actually skated in Tonya?

Margot Robbie

Similarly, how did Margot Robbie train for I Tonya? Robbie trained for three months. The first five weeks were in Burbank with Kawahara, for thrice-weekly training sessions that lasted two hours each. Then Robbie returned to Australia, where she sent a list of sequences to work on with a Kawahara-approved coach; in total, Robbie learned five routines.

Furthermore, did Margot Robbie learn to skate for Tonya?

The Australian actress had no idea who Tonya Harding was before going "down a Wikipedia rabbit hole" and deciding to learn to ice skate to play the disgraced Olympian. For five months, Margot Robbie spent four hours a day, five days a week, learning to ice skate, becoming obsessed with the sport.

Did Tonya hit Nancy Kerrigan?

In January 1994, Harding became embroiled in controversy when her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, orchestrated an attack on her fellow U.S. skating rival Nancy Kerrigan. Both women then competed in the February 1994 Winter Olympics, where Kerrigan won the silver medal and Harding finished eighth.
