Scott Ethan Allen (born February 8, 1949 in Newark, New Jersey) is an American figure skater. He is the 1964 Olympic bronze medalist, the 1965 World silver medalist, and the 1964 and 1966 U.S. national champion.

The son of Swedish figure skating champion Sonja Fuhrman, Allen made his national debut at the age of 9, winning the silver medal in the novice men's division at the 1959 U.S. Championships. At that time he was the youngest competitor ever to skate in the Championships.[1]

He won the bronze medal at the 1964 Winter Olympics two days before his 15th birthday, becoming the youngest medalist at the Winter Olympics.[2] He still holds the record for the youngest male medalist and the youngest individual medalist.[3]

He represented the Skating Club of New York in competition.[4] After his skating career, Allen attended Harvard University, class of 1971. As of early 2014, he resides in New York City.[5]
