Cameron Jarvis

IMG_8749.JPGAlpine skier Cameron Jarvis already has a host of national medals to his name, and he’s now hoping to add an international medal to his haul! 

The Special Olympics Horowhenua athlete has been to two National Winter Games and from last year’s Games in Cardrona brought home three gold medals. The 27 year-old is also a talented swimmer and basketball player and has won medals at three National Summer Games. His best performance was at the 2009 Games in Palmerston North where he won two gold and one silver medal.

“Skiing is the best thing about Special Olympics. I like competition and winning medals,” Cameron says. “I also like travelling with my team and having fun on the camps - as well as sleeping in the van!!”

Cameron has already shown some serious commitment to his training for the World Winter Games. He’s training at the gym three days a week, swimming and playing basketball regularly and will be going to the Lower North Island ski camp in August, as well as hitting the mountain at Ruapehu when he can.

“I’ve already lost seven kilograms to help me go faster! I am really excited about being selected for the World Winter Games. I’m looking forward to going to Austria and representing my country and my Club.”

When Cameron’s not hard at work training he keeps himself busy with his part-time job at New World Levin. He’s also a keen rugby and cricket fan and supports the All Blacks and the Crusaders, as well as the Australian cricket team.
