Shawn Eckardt / Brian Sean Griffith: Tonya Harding Bodyguard Who Put Hit on Nancy Kerrigan, Dead at 40
One of the more bizarre events in sports history is relevant once again this evening. Tonya Harding's bodyguard who helped orchestrate the hit on Nancy Kerrigan's knee to help his client reach the Olympics passed away today at age 40.
Formerly Shawn Eckardt, he changed his name to Brian Griffith to get away from the attack.
