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

OTTAWA, June 20, 2012 /CNW/ - As Minister of State (Sport) I am pleased to congratulate Canadian mountain bike cycling athletes, Max Plaxton, Geoff Kabush, Emily Batty, and Catharine Pendrel, who have earned their spots on the 2012 Canadian Olympic Team.

The Harper Government is pleased to provide continued support for Olympic sports and all of our amazing Canadian Olympic athletes. Not only are you an enormous source of pride for all Canadians, you serve as incredibly inspiring role models of excellent sportsmanship, determination and motivation for our children and youth.

As Minister of State (Sport), I look forward to joining Canadians across our country as we cheer on Team Canada this summer. I wish all of our Canadian Olympic Team athletes the very best of success as they prepare for this extremely prestigious moment in their sport careers.
