OTTAWA, Feb. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - I am pleased to congratulate the athletes who have been nominated to represent Canada in para-nordic skiing at the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
Canada's Paralympic Para-Nordic Team will comprise:
The team is coached by Robin McKeever (Canmore, Alberta) and Kaspar Wirz (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan).
As the largest single contributor to sport in this country, our Government is proud to support sport participation and excellence from playground to podium.
Canada is a leading sport nation, and I, along with all Canadians, recognize the hard work and dedication of our athletes as they train toward this prestigious milestone in their sport careers.
As Minister of State (Sport), I wish all the best to our Canadian Paralympic Team athletes as they prepare for the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi. I would also like to thank the coaches, family, and officials who support and encourage these athletes who will proudly represent our country.
