Hamilton College’s Director of Sports Medicine, Scott Siddon, recently volunteered his expertise at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Siddon provided prevention, evaluation, management, treatment and rehabilitation for injured athletes at the training center. He has previously given his medical services at the Colorado Springs and Chula Vista (Calif.) Olympic Training Centers.
Siddon also assisted with mat-side medical coverage for the Dave Schultz Memorial International Wrestling Tournament. Schultz was tragically killed in 1996 and part of his legacy was captured in the 2014 movie “Foxcatcher”. The tournament featured many top international wrestlers and U.S. champions will be invited to the U.S. Olympic Trials in April.
Siddon is in his 21st year as a member of Hamilton’s sports medicine team. He spent eight years as assistant athletic trainer before he was named head athletic trainer/director of sports medicine in 2003. He oversees all daily athletic training room operations, including injury management and rehabilitation, staff assignments and ensuring medical coverage for all Continental student-athletes.
