본문 - Scott Hamilton Interview (Olympic Hall of Fame, 1996.6.29) What was going through your mind when you went undefeated for so long?
Scott Hamilton: At first I didn't really like it very much. I liked doing well at the '80 Olympics. I got the only standing ovation of the night, which was pretty cool. The Olympics in '80 was phenomenal. It was my favorite memory of all competitive events, because it was brand new and it was exciting.
Then when I started winning in '81, it was hard to take. I didn't really feel worthy of the title. It was a hard transition. By '82 I realized if I'm not going to win it somebody I'd beaten before will. I'll be going backwards if I don't keep winning.
So I kept trying to reinvent myself, and I kept trying to look at my competition, see who was really improving and try to stay ahead of them. Brian Boitano was coming up at the time, Brian Orser was coming up at the time. They all had the tougher jump, but they were still in their development stages. So I knew I could hold them off for a couple of more years.
