Cameron "Cammy" Myler (born December 7, 1968) is an American luger who was a member of the U.S. National Luge Team from 1985 to 1998 and competed on four Winter Olympics teams - 1988 (Calgary, Canada), 1992 (Albertville, France) 1994 (Lillehammer, Norway) and 1998 (Nagano, Japan). She earned her best finish of fifth in the women's singles event in Albertville at the 1992 and was elected by her teammates to carry the American flag during the opening ceremony of the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer.
She was introduced to luge when her parents volunteered during the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Myler's uncle, Michael "Mickey" Luce, competed for the United States in bobsled at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, finishing 11th in the two-man and 15th in the four-man events.
After retiring from luge after the 1998 Olympics in Nagano, Cameron attended Boston College Law School and received her J.D. in 2001. She practiced law in Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy's Intellectual Property/Litigation Group before moving to Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, an entertainment and media law firm in New York City.
