Classification

Collin Cameron won three bronze medals in his Paralympic Games debut in 2018. He was third in the 7.5 kilometre and 15 kilometre in the biathlon and helped Canada to third in the open cross country relay.

That was just a taste of the future. A year later he delivered another triple medal performance at the 2019 World Para Nordic Skiing Championships. He won gold in the cross-country men's sitting sprint, a silver in the biathlon men's sitting middle-distance, and won another silver medal in the mixed relay.

Cameron first tried Para nordic skiing in November 2015 at an identification camp in Canmore, AB. He began competing in January 2016. His introduction to Nordic skiing came by chance after he saw some photos on the Sudbury Accessible Sports Council Facebook page.
