Nashville, TN (January 29, 2024) – Figure skating icon SCOTT HAMILTON will commemorate the 40th Anniversary of his 1984 Olympic victory on February 16 with 40 YEARS OF GOING FOR GOLD, a celebratory ice show at Glide at Brooklyn Bridge Park, benefitting cancer research through his Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation and healthcare partner Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  This once-in-a-lifetime event will feature decorated figure skating stars including 1984 Olympic medalists Brian Orser and Jozef Sabovčík, plus 2022 Olympic Champion Nathan Chen and more, along with top fundraisers who earned an opportunity to join the show. Following the show, the evening will conclude with a meet and greet for all ticket holders.

World, National, and Olympic skaters joining the celebration will include 3x World Champion and 2022 Olympic Champion Nathan Chen, 2x Olympic Silver Medalist and World Champion Brian Orser, Olympic Bronze Medalist and 2x European Champion Jozef Sabovčík, US National Champion and Olympian Mariah Bell, and professional ice dance company Ice Theatre of New York, with more to be announced.  In addition to our elite talents, local skaters fundraise for the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation with the Top 5 fundraisers included in the celebration ice show. 

“It is mindboggling to believe 40 years have passed since I stood on the podium having won a Gold Medal in Sarajevo and I can’t wait to reunite with Brian and Jozef to commemorate our accomplishments,” said Scott Hamilton. “I remember thinking about my mom while the national anthem played, wishing she would have survived cancer to witness such an accomplishment. Since that moment, I’ve dedicated my life to finding ways to ‘turn cancer upside down’ by funding research that targets and treats cancer, while sparing patients from the harsh side effects of treatment. February 16 will always be a special date for me and I’m excited to be in New York to share it with such incredible champions and remarkable cancer fundraisers.”
