Collin Cameron wins gold in Pyeongchang, S Korea!

Ontario’s Collin Cameron won gold in the pre-Olympic IPC races in Pyeongchang in the sprint race.

“It was pretty special to be in S. Korea to watch Collin earn his first world cup medal. While I knew he was on the cusp of medaling on the international stage, leaping onto the top podium spot for his first medal was amazing to witness! Collin is a true competitor and raced a strong field for the win.” Kate Boyd, CCC Para-Nordic Development Coordinator
