With plenty of size, speed and aggressiveness, Cam Stones was a natural to transition from rugby to bobsleigh. In 2012 he had captained Canada to the U20 Junior World Rugby trophy. He’d also enjoyed a successful varsity career at McMaster University. 

Cam made his international bobsleigh debut in January 2015 in a North American Cup race. He returned to the North American Cup circuit to start the 2015-16 season before making his World Cup debut in January 2016 as a member of Chris Spring’s four-man crew. 

He competed in a World Cup two-man race for the first time in February 2016 with pilot Nick Poloniato, with his World Championship debut coming later in the year in the non-Olympic team event. Cam moved to the World Cup circuit fulltime in 2016-17 and earned his first medal, a four-man bronze, in Lake Placid with Chris Spring, Lascelles Brown and Samuel Giguere. He was also in Spring’s four-man sled at the 2017 World Championships.  

Cam made his Olympic debut at the 2018 Games in PyeongChang where he was part of Nick Poloniato’s 12th-place finishing crew. 

His eyes now squarely focused on the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, Cam joined forces with Justin Kripps’ crew in 2019 for the charge towards the Beijing Games. Cam pushed Kripps in both the two- and four-man races. 

The crew showed immediate chemistry. Cam pushed Team Kripps to six podium finishes in a shortened World Cup season. With two, two-man silvers in Europe and a bronze in the two-man along with a gold in the four-man races in Lake Placid, Cam pushed Kripps to the silver at the World Championships in the two-man, and bronze in the four-man race.

The four-medal triumph led to Team Kripps being named Team of the Year at the Canadian Sport Awards.
