I have heard 2 or 3 songs mention Nancy Kerrigan. Why do they mention her name?

What do they mean when they say Nancy Kerrigan in Strange Clouds b.o.b and hurt me tomorrow knaan? B.o.B says "I hit her with that pipe, call that Nancy Kerrigan" and K'naan says "Cause girl you bring me to my knees...Nancy Kerrigan"

Update:

THANK YOU but I all ready know who she is, I just want to know why all these people are mentioning her in her raps? what is the importance?

    She was an American figure skater who's opponent paid someone to assault her (He bashed her knees with a collapsible police baton) so that she would be unable to compete in upcoming competitions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Kerrigan#Januar...

    Because back in the 1990's Tonya Harding (another figure skater) got pissed off at her, because she broke a shoe lace and Nancy Kerrigan was doing better than her and had someone hit her with a pipe in the knee, to stop her from winning.
