Statement by the Honourable Bal Gosal, Minister of State (Sport), on the Announcement of the Modern Pentathlon Nominees to the 2012 Canadian Olympic Team

OTTAWA, June 6, 2012 /CNW/ - As Minister of State (Sport), I offer my heartfelt congratulations to modern pentathletes Melanie McCann and Donna Vakalis, who were named today to the 2012 Canadian Olympic Team.

Our athletes are an enormous source of pride for all Canadians. That is why the Harper Government is proud to provide its continued support to Olympic sports and to Canadian Olympic athletes who will proudly represent our great nation on the world stage.

As Minister of State (Sport), I wish all these athletes the very best of success as they prepare for this incredible milestone in their sport careers. We will be cheering for you and your teammates this summer as you begin your pursuit for world-class athletic excellence at the Olympic Summer Games in London.
