OTTAWA, June 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Congratulations to the athletes
participating in the Canadian Track and Field trials being held in
Calgary, Alberta. This important event is a selection trial for the
nomination of athletes to the 2012 Canadian Olympic teams.
At the 2012 London Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games, our Olympians
and Paralympians will compete against the world's best. The
accomplishments of our Canadian athletes will be an inspiration to
Canadians of all ages and abilities.
As the single largest contributor to sport in this country, the Harper

playground to the podium. We are very pleased to provide support for
Athletics Canada, as well as continued support for Olympic sports and
all of our amazing Canadian Olympic athletes.
