MEXICO CITY – Canadian Olympic Committee Executive Director Communications and Chief Sport Officer made the following statement regarding COC President Marcel Aubut’s election earlier this morning in Mexico City to the Executive Committee of the Pan American Sports Organization during the 15th PASO General Assembly:

“As a sport nation, Canada has a great deal to contribute at the international level. The Canadian Olympic Committee looks forward to being part of the PASO team as we work to help ensure that Pan American athletes have the support that they need and deserve to reach the height of Olympic success. Our ongoing focus remains the strong representation and promotion of Canada’s values and interests throughout the international sport community. Canada sought the opportunity to host the Pan American Games because of its inherent benefit to sport in Canada.”
– Caroline Assalian, Canadian Olympic Committee Chief Sport Officer.

“It is as honour and a privilege that on behalf of the Canadian Olympic Team, Mr. Aubut has been elected from among his peers to sit on the Pan American Sports Organization’s Executive Committee. Today’s election will help to build on Canada’s already strong presence at the Pan American Sports Organization and on the wider international stage, including when Toronto hosts athletes from throughout the Americas at the 2015 Pan American Games.”
– Dimitri Soudas, Canadian Olympic Committee Executive Director Communications.
