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.
