Biography

Carmelo Camet was born in Paris, the son of Francisco Camet, arguably Argentina's first Olympic athlete, and, specializing in épée, was already a national fencing champion by the age of 16. He was selected to participate in the 1924 Olympics in Paris, but did not attend, choosing instead to complete his law degree. After his bronze medal-winning 1928 Olympic appearance as a substitute for the main team, Camet married Elsie Muir and settled into practicing law in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the time of his death, he was believed to be the world's oldest living former Olympian.
