Scott Hamilton is a retired American figure skater and Olympic gold medalist. He won four consecutive U.S. championships (1981–1984), four consecutive World Championships (1981–1984), and a gold medal in the 1984 Olympics.
Hamilton's breakthrough performance was in the 1981 U.S. Championships. He performed flawlessly and the audience began a standing ovation several seconds before the end of the performance. He never lost an amateur competition again. In 1981 he won gold in the World Figure Skating Championships. He won gold again in 1982 and 1983 at the U.S. and World Championships, and won the gold medal at the 1984 Winter Olympics. He won that year's World Championships and then turned professional in April 1984.
After turning professional, Hamilton toured with the Ice Capades for two years, and then created "Scott Hamilton's American Tour," which later was renamed Stars on Ice. He co-founded, co-produced and performed in Stars on Ice for 15 years before retiring from the tour in 2001 (though he still returns for occasional guest performances).
He has been awarded numerous skating honors, including being the first solo male figure skater to be awarded the Jacques Favart Award (in 1988). In 1990 he was inducted into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame.
Hamilton was a skating commentator for CBS television for many years, beginning in 1985. He has also worked for NBC television. In 2006 he was the host of the FOX television program Skating with Celebrities. He serves on the Board of Directors for Special Olympics International.
He has written two best-selling books, The Great Eight: How to Be Happy (Even When You Have Every Reason to Be Miserable) and Landing It: My Life On and Off the Ice. He further inspires others as a speaker, philanthropist and cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.
