About Cam

Cam Bolton grew up competing in both skiing and snowboarding. While he excelled in both, he decided to focus solely on snowboarding from the age of 15.

Cam made his World Cup debut in 2011 at Valmalenco, Italy. Two years later he competed at his World Championships in Stoneham, Canada where he placed 41st. That same season Cam claimed his first World Cup top-10 at Sierra Nevada in 2013.

Leading into the 2014 Winter Olympic Games Cam achieved a Personal-Best fifth place at the X Games in Aspen, Colorado.

That strong form continued into his Olympic debut at Sochi, where he placed 11th in a high class field – the best result from the Australian snowboard cross men’s team. He was poised to progress to the big final until Cam fell victim to a racing incident in the semi-final.

Battered, bruised, with a bloodied nose and a wrist which was later found to be broken, a courageous Cam lined up in the small final only to crash again. The highest placed Aussie at the 2014 Games, Cam showed a level of promise and determination beyond 11th place.

After a challenging 2014-15 World Cup tour, with many event cancellations, Cam finished the season 15th at the 2015 World Championships in Kreischberg, Austria.

Following a back injury, which took him out of competition for the majority of 2016, Cam returned to competition and placed with 15th in Montafon, Austria later that year. Cam lined up for his second Olympics at PyeongChang 2018, where he finished 10th overall after a crash in the semi-final injured his wrist.

Cam went on to have a breakthrough season the in 2018-19, with multiple Personal Best results. He claimed his first World Cup victory in Feldberg, Germany and backed this up with bronze at Veysonnaz, Switzerland. Cam finished the 2018-19 World Cup tour ranked fifth in the world, the best of any Australian snowboard cross athlete.

The highlight of Cam’s 2019-20 came in Montafon, Austria where he finished with a silver medal in the World Cup event.

After taking the 2020-21 international season off due to the pandemic, Cam channeled his focus for Beijing 2022.

He was eighth fastest in seeding to progress directly to the 1/8 finals. From there Cam made it into the quarter-finals and finished 13th overall.

Cam teamed up with Belle Brockhoff for the Olympic debut of mixed team snowboard cross and lost in the quarter-finals.
