Are You Struggling After Failure? Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton Is ‘Here to Cheer You On’

From Olympic champion to cancer survivor, Scott Hamilton has been an inspiration. He wants his story to be an encouragement to everyone – but especially to the younger generation. On today’s show, Hamilton talked about his upcoming book, “Finish First: Winning Changes Everything,” and shared some of his fascinating life stories.

“This was really meant to be just a wakeup call and a little bit of an ‘I’m here to cheer you on,’” Hamilton said, describing the book as a guide to “taking your talents to places unknown and to really live your lives fully and joyfully.”

He also shared his thoughts on the whole Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan debacle that has been in the news again.

“A big part of redemption is to come forward … I’m not 100 percent sure that Tonya’s ever really done that,” Hamilton said.

He remembered how he and Harding had shared the same sponsor, a “gift” Hamilton says she never understood.

“Tonya bit every hand that ever fed her,” he said.

I wanted to check my ‘height privilege’ at the door with @ScottHamilton84. Rare to find his quality, kindness and sincerity in someone as famous as he is. A real stand out of a man. His book Finish first is a must read.
