BIOGRAPHY


Years on Team: 4
School: Salt Lake Community College
Club: National Sports Foundation

The Camerota family moved to Park City when Brett was age 6. He could see the jumps at Utah Olympic Park and wanted to try ski jumping as soon as he could. In his young career, he's gone on to compete in the 2006 Olympic Winter Games and three Junior World Championships. He and his twin brother, Eric, are part of the next wave of talent for the combined team.

Camerota returned during the 2009 season to being a World Cup point scorer in multiple events, and he notched off two top 30 results last year as well. The highlight of the season for Camerota, though, was competing on the World Championship team in the Gundersen event.

FIRST TRACKS


Utah Olympic Park was just opening when the family settled into Park City in the early 1990s. The jumps seduced the Camerota twins and, as they grew, they added cross-country and became combined skiers. Camerota competed in three Junior World Championships (best result: 21st in the individual in 2003 in Solleftea, SWE).

I AM


A twin, despite closeness in looks to my brother, Eric, we are fraternal - not identical - twins...Enjoy alpine skiing as well, but come summer, my favorite sports are golf and perhaps a little paintball...Plays guitar...Put snowmobiling on hold, by and large, until I finish my ski career.
