OTTAWA, Jan. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the
snowboard cross and slopestyle athletes who were named to the 2014
Canadian Olympic Team.
The athletes named to the 2014 Olympic team include three-time Olympian
and Vancouver 2010 Olympic gold medallist, Maelle Ricker (West
Vancouver, BC); along with first-time Olympians Mark McMorris (Regina,
SK), Sebastien Toutant (Montreal, QC), Spencer O'Brien (Alert Bay, BC)
and Chris Robanske (Calgary, AB).
Our athletes are an enormous source of pride for all Canadians. That is
why our Government is proud to provide continued support for Olympic
sports and our Canadian Olympic athletes who will proudly represent
this great nation on the world stage.
As Minister of State (Sport), I wish all these athletes the very best of
success as they prepare to represent Canada in February in Sochi,
Russia. This is an incredible milestone in your sport careers and all
Canadians will be cheering for you and your teammates in your pursuit
of world-class athletic excellence at the Olympic Winter Games.
