OTTAWA, Jan. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - I offer my heartfelt congratulations to the ski-cross athletes who have been named to the 2014 Canadian Olympic Team.

The athletes named to the 2014 Canadian Olympic ski-cross team are Dave Duncan (London, Ont.), Chris Del Bosco (Montréal, Que.), Brady Leman (Calgary, Alta.), Kelsey Serwa (Kelowna, B.C.), Marielle Thompson (Whistler, B.C.) and Georgia Simmerling (Vancouver, B.C.).

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

As Minister of State (Sport), I wish all these athletes the very best of success as they prepare to represent Canada next month in Sochi, Russia. This is an incredible milestone in your sport careers, and all Canadians will be cheering for you and your teammates in your pursuit of world-class athletic excellence at the Olympic Winter Games.
