Was it ever determined who attacked Nancy Kerrigan and why in 1994?

Nancy Kerrigan had the artistry in her program, Tonya Harding was the more athletic skater. Tonya's husband wanted to make sure she would have an advantage over Nancy Kerrigan in the Olympics, as the media viewed Nancy Kerrigan to be the favorite. As it was, Oksana Baiul from the Ukraine won the gold at that Olympics, a relatively unknown skater until then. Nancy I think got a silver and Tonya imploded.

Yes, her now ex husband Jeff Gillooly and 2 of his friends. Nancy was suddenly the front runner, the one everyone was watching. Despite the fact that Tonya landed triple axels, something no woman had done yet, she still didn't have what it took to win.
