Since discovering the fastest sport on skates in 2012, Cameron Naasz has rocketed to prominence, writing history as the first American ever to take an event win, earning a team championship, and finishing first overall on 2015/16's individual World Championship podium. In 2016/17 he once again displayed his trademark speed, power and agility throughout the season to become the first person to win back-to-back titles.
Mirroring his everyday life, one of Cameron's skating strengths is transitions: he excels at building speed when pumping out of one section of the track to another. In terms of style, he sees himself a glider, saying, "I feel more confident when I'm gliding in a tuck – then I can attack at good angles."
In 2017/18, the Minnesota native finished runner-up overall after his rival Scott Croxall reclaimed the trophy he had previously won in 2015.
