Scott Hamilton


Scott Hamilton has faced stage 4 testicular cancer and three brain tumors. He famously lost his high-profile dream broadcasting gig to two much younger people and he’s overcome a lifetime of hardships, including being adopted, being “too short” to skate and falling in love with figure skating, a sport his family couldn’t afford. The Olympic gold medalist, broadcaster, author and father says despite it all, he remains an eternal optimist. He talks to Growing Bolder about his latest book, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, and explains why he wants to change the recent perception that a drive to be the best is a bad thing.
