Biography

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, Scott captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as a analyst/commentator, performer, producer and bestselling author (Fritzy Finds a Hat, 2020, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, 2018; The Great Eight, 2009; Landing It, 1999). He further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.

After losing his mother to cancer, then becoming survivor himself, Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). He founded several education and survivorship programs including Chemocare.com and the 4th Angel Mentoring Program. Events such as Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer and An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends galas fund research into treatments that treat the cancer and spare the patient harm.

He is also the founder of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at the Ford Ice Centers in Antioch, TN and Bellevue, TN, where he may 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 – at their home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Scott Hamilton is one of the finest human beings I have had the privilege to spend time with and work with.

– Brian Mitchell - Area Director, South Central MO FCA
Thank you for all of your work to make the Rehab Summit a memorable experience for all involved last month. I can honestly say that you’re the first speaker to tell me that you were there to make my job easier! Many thanks for your generosity with your time and vulnerability in your talk. It made an impact as you can see by the comments included in the evaluation report.
– Holly Stevenson – Corporate Meeting Manager, PESI, Inc.
Scott was our keynote at the 2017 Community Oncology Conference. His presentation skills are superb. He made you laugh. He made you cry. And, most importantly, he made you realize just how lucky you are and the meaning of hard work. In polling our attendees, they say he is the best keynote we have ever had. Thank you, Scott Hamilton. You are the Man!!!
– Mary Kruczynski • Director of Policy Analysis, Community Oncology Alliance
Scott Hamilton’s celebrity is only surpassed by his kindness and ability to connect with audiences. A seasoned communicator, Scott’s self- deprecating style, vulnerability and stage presence has the power to move, evoke smiles and most importantly — pulls audiences forward into their seats and towards something that matters. And working with Scott is a joy since he is collaborative, focused and motivated.
– Mike Lundgren • Partner, Director Innovation Strategy, VML
We laughed. We cried. We left inspired. Mr. Scott Hamilton may be known for his Olympic gold medals, but he spoke to our group of educators as a parent with a child who needed extra academic support. Through his own story of challenge and triumph, we were reminded of how important it is for young people to have champions in their lives.
– Janell Wood • Director, TN Department of Education Extended Learning Programs
Scott Hamilton was absolutely outstanding last night at our event. He was one of the best speakers we have had over a 15 year period. He knocked the cover off the ball. A+++++++
– Jeffrey R. Jay, M.D. • Great Point Partners, LLC
Just a note to let you know that Scott KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK last night!!!!!!!!!! He had the audience laughing and crying all at the same time – including me. He got a standing ovation. He was gracious and agile and real - and we could not have asked for a more inspirational way to end the day. We are grateful.
– Michelle Soto, Vice President, Conference Services, Premier Inc.
Scott Hamilton - a gentle soul with a powerful message of hope, endurance, faith and ultimately survivorship. One of the nation’s most adored athletes will bring your audience to their feet with his honest and heartfelt delivery of overcoming great obstacles. While his medals are many, his story and second act in life are his greatest achievements. Scott delivers a dynamic call to action to his audience and challenges each person to embrace their obstacles as a way of redirection and change for their life - and he does it all in the way we know Scott Hamilton best – truly Olympic winning style.
– Karen Shayne • Co-Founder, Women Survivors Alliance & SURVIVORville
