About Scott Hamilton
The most recognized male figure skating star in the world, and figure skating’s voice of authority in the U.S.,  Scott Hamilton captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo in 1984. Since then, he has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as an analyst, performer, producer and best-selling author (Landing It, 1999; The Great Eight, 2009 and his newest, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, released February 6, 2018.) He further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor. Scott currently heads the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship) and the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy. 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 – at their home outside Nashville, Tennessee.
