World Cup gold for Sudbury sit ski racer Collin Cameron
2017-03-13
by Randy Pascal

Sudbury's Collin Cameron is emerging as a force to be reckoned with on the World Para-Nordic World Cup circuit. Competing on the site of the 2018 PyeonChang Winter Olympics in Korea this past weekend, Cameron claimed his first ever World Cup victory, capturing the sit-ski sprint, just ahead of American Daniel Cnossen.

A field of 24 participants were on hand, representing Norway, the Ukraine, Belarus, Korea, Poland, Kazakhstan, China, Great Britain, the United States and Canada. Cameron had secured his spot in the final, posting the third fastest qualifying time, but used the experience from sprint races earlier this year to overtake Cnossen in the final 100 metres.

Motivated by what he felt was a missed opportunity to crack the podium last month in Germany, the 28 year-old former sledge hockey player nailed his tactics this time around, improving on his previous best finish of fourth.

“The coaching and support I have had around me since I started this sport late in 2015 is the key to my quick development for sure, but I think also my eagerness to learn from every training session and each race has been important,” noted Cameron on a Canada Cross Country Ski media release today.

Cameron was one of four Canadians in the event, with Chris Klebl (9th), Yves Bourque (23rd) and Ethan Hess (24th) also racing, while Louis Fortin placed 18th in the men's standing cross-country ski race.

Emily Young of Vancouver joined Cameron on the podium, earning a silver medal in the women's standing division.
