Scott Hamilton - Board Member
Scott grew up playing multiple sports including football, basketball, baseball, and track in Northwest Arkansas until an accident broke his right hip and both arms. After being sidelined for many years he became a recreational runner. In 2009 he had his previously broken hip replaced with a shiny new steel one. During recovery he became an avid cyclist and then began swimming in hopes that when he could begin running again he wanted to give a go at triathlons.
In 2011 he completed his first triathlon by doing the olympic distance at the Kansas City Triathlon followed only a few weeks later by doing the Kansas Ironman 70.3. He was completely hooked and began competing every chance he got, including local races and other 70.3’s such as Branson, Racine, and New Orleans.
Scott completed his first full distance triathlon at Ironman Louisville in August, 2012 and his second at Ironman Florida in November 2015.
