OTTAWA, June 15, 2012 /CNW/ - As Minister of State (Sport), I would like to congratulate Canadian cyclists Tara Whitten, Jasmin Glaesser, Gillian Carleton, Laura Brown, Stephanie Roorda, Monique Sullivan, Zach Bell, Travis Smith, Joseph Veloce and Hugo Barrette, who have earned their spots on the 2012 Canadian Olympic cycling track 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.
