The most recognized male figure skating star in the world, Scott Hamilton has won 70 titles, awards and honors including an Emmy Award nomination, induction into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and a privileged member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame. In 1984, he captured the attention of the world just over 30 years ago with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as a commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author (Landing It, 1999; The Great Eight, 2009). He further inspires others as a speaker, philanthropist and cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.
Scott is actively involved in his Scott Hamilton C.A.R.E.S. Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship), Chemocare.com and RadCare.org & patient mentoring program The 4th Angel Network (in conjunction with CARES). He serves on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics International, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and Provision Center for Proton Therapy. He is also the founder of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, TN, where he can frequently be found coaching Learn to Skate students and sharing his love of skating.
In what little free time remains, Scott can be found on the golf course and enjoys spending time with his wife Tracie and four children.
