Scott Hamilton is a living example that good guys CAN finish first. An Olympic Champion, cancer survivor, television broadcaster, motivational speaker, author, husband and father, Scott epitomizes the eternal optimist. After winning Olympic gold in Sarajevo in 1984, Scott went on to found and headline in Stars on Ice, which continues touring more than 20 years later. He regularly provides analysis for NBC Figure Skating competition coverage. His two books, Landing It and more recently, The Great Eight, How to Be Happy (Even When You Have Every Reason to be Miserable), have both earned critical acclaim. Following the loss of his mother to cancer and his own experience as a cancer survivor, he 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. In partnership with the NHL’s Nashville Predators in 2014, he founded the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, Tennessee, where he continues to coach beginner and advanced skating students. He serves on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics International, the Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt University and the Provision Center for Proton Therapy. He lives near Nashville with his wife Tracie and their four children.
