scott hamilton 5 Inspirational Quotes By Olympic Gold Medalist Baby Boomer Scott HamiltonI just try to touch people’s hearts in a way through skating, so they’re not just witnessing a performance, they’re feeling a performance and they’re a part of it.

I graduated a the top of my class in the ’84 Olympic Games; I won a gold medal.

Adversity, and perseverance and all these things can shape you. They can give you a value and a self-esteem that is priceless.

Always try to maintain complete tolerance and always make an effort to give people more than they expect.

Most other competitions are individual achievements, but the Olympic Games is something that belongs to everybody.

~Scott Hamilton 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist Men’s figure Skating

Scott Scovell Hamilton (born August 28, 1958) is an American figure skater and Olympic gold medalist. He won four consecutive U.S. championships (1981-1984), four consecutive World Championships (1981-1984) and the 1984 Olympics.

Trivia: When Scott was two years old he contracted a mysterious illness that caused him to stop growing. After numerous tests and several wrong diagnoses (including a diagnosis of cystic fibrosis that gave him just six months to live), the disease began to correct itself. His family physician sent him to Boston Children’s hospital to see a Dr. Shwachman. Sources are unable to verify if he was actually diagnosed by Dr. Shwachman as having Shwachman-Diamond syndrome. It is said that a special diet and exercise cured the problem. However, he grew to only 5-foot-2½ and he weighed only 108 pounds during his peak skating years.
