OTTAWA, June 12, 2012 /CNW/ - As Minister of State (Sport), I am pleased
to congratulate triathlon athletes Simon Whitfield, Kyle Jones, Brent
McMahon, Paula Findlay and Kathy Tremblay, who were nominated to the
2012 Canadian Olympic Team.
As the largest single contributor to sport in this country, our
Government is proud to support sport participation and excellence from
playground to podium.
Canada is a top sport nation, and I, along with all Canadians, recognize
the hard work and dedication of our athletes as they train toward this
prestigious milestone in their sport careers.
I wish all the best to our Canadian Olympic Team athletes as they
prepare for the Games. I would also like to thank the coaches, family,
and officials who support and encourage the athletes who will proudly
represent our country.
