Congratulations to Old Melburnians Cam Bolton (OM 2008), Seve De Campo (OM 2016) and Louis Muhlen-Schulte (OM 2016) on their selection into the Australian 2022 Winter Olympics team. They will compete at Beijing from 4 February 2022.
Cam Bolton is one of Australia’s finest snowboarders with two world championships to his name as well as an impressive array of results over the past 17 years.
The Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics is Cam’s third Olympic Games. He reached the semi-final at Sochi 2014 Games where he ultimately placed 11th overall.
Cam placed fourth in the Small Final during his second Olympic appearance at the PyeongChang 2018 Games finishing tenth overall. He competed in this race after a crash in the semi-final resulted in a broken wrist.
Cam’s talent was evident while he was a student at Melbourne Grammar School. He claimed both state and national snowboarding championships, representing the School with distinction on many occasions.
He has returned to the School numerous times speaking at Assembly and supporting members of the snowsports team, with great appreciation from staff and students alike.
We wish Cam every success as he represents Australia once again.
You can watch Cam win his first World Cup in 2019 here.
Seve de Campo
Seve de Campo has been competing in Junior and U23 cross country skiing events at an international level since 2015. He made an impressive debut at the senior World Championships last year, finishing 17th in the team sprint. Seve was also runner-up in the 2021 Australia/New Zealand Cup.
Winning state and national cross country skiing championships during his time at Melbourne Grammar School, we are delighted to see that Seve’s prowess in the sport has now taken him to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
You can find out more about Seve’s success as part of the Australian cross country ski team here.
Our best wishes go to Seve in February when he competes as an Olympian for the first time.
Seve was Captain of Snowsports in 2016, leading the team to the state championship and second place at national level.
He was also one of our most celebrated students. Seve was Vice-Captain of the School in 2016, and was awarded the Sir Brian Hone Medal, the School’s highest honour, that year. The Medal is presented to students who have performed at an exceptional standard in a particular field of endeavour. Seve was awarded the Medal on the basis of his outstanding contribution to the School’s snowsports program, and also in acknowledgment of his strong academic and leadership capabilities.
Louis Muhlen-Schulte specialises in the Slalom and Giant Slalom, and he will make his Olympic debut in these events at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
His proficiency in alpine skiing was evident early on. Louis placed fifth in his first International Ski Federation (FIS) event (Men’s Slalom) in 2014 aged 16 years. Since then, Louis has had a slew of podium and top ten finishes across multiple FIS and University events.
An excellent scholar, Louis also demonstrated talent in numerous sports while at Melbourne Grammar School playing in the First XV for Rugby when in only Year 10.
He was part of the 2013 Melbourne Grammar state championship snowsports team and secured the individual national championship in his division for the Giant Slalom event that year. He left the School during mid-Year 10 to pursue snowsports opportunities overseas.
Louis is remembered fondly by many people at the School, and we wish him the very best in his Olympic campaign.
