OTTAWA
– Speed Skating Canada (SSC) made the following statement today regarding allegations of tampering with skates of one of Canada’s national short track team members during the March 2011 World Short Track Team Championships in Warsaw, Poland:

“Through arbitration filing documents in the United States, it has come to our attention that a member of the U.S. speed skating national team may have tampered with the skates of a Canadian team skater during the 2011 World Short Track Team Championships.

“As this is a legal matter before the courts, SSC, and its national team members, will not be further discussing this issue until the conclusion and resolutions from the court proceedings, or at another appropriate time.”
