Biography

Scott Hamilton is the living example that “good guys CAN finish first!” He is an Olympic Champion, television broadcaster, philanthropist, motivational speaker, author, husband, father, cancer survivor, and eternal optimist.

In 1984, Scott captured the hearts of millions of viewers worldwide with his incredible Olympic gold medal-winning performance in Sarajevo. Since then he has entertainment millions more with his exciting performances, complete with backflips, artistry and humor. Considered one of the greatest male figure skaters of all time, Scott has spent the last 30+ years providing his infectious analysis of national and global skating competitions and as founder of Stars on Ice, in which he performed for many years and which is still touring with other celebrated ice skating and ice dancing champions today.

Following his mother’s passing from cancer and his own highly publicized survival of cancer, Scott launched the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship) with a mission to improve cancer patient survivorship by supporting world class cancer research and the highest quality patient treatment and care. The Foundation supports two cancer education websites and a patient mentoring program, as well as spearheading nationwide initiatives, including Skate to Elimin8 Cancer to raise money in turning cancer upside down.

In 2014, he founded the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy, in partnership with the NHL’s Nashville Predators, at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, TN to rebuild figure skating from the ground up with his programs that offer fresh and fun ways to help students fall in love with skating, like he did as a child. He can frequently be found coaching Learn to Skate and Advanced students, delighting in the fact that skating in Nashville is quickly becoming something whole families enjoy doing together.

A celebrated author, Scott’s two books, Landing It and The Great Eight, How to Be Happy (Even When You Have Every Reason to be Miserable), have both earned critical praise.

Scott 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’s an active supporter of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and Best Buddies. He lives outside of Nashville with his wife Tracie and their four children.
