TORONTO – Today, the Canadian Olympic Committee issued the following statement on Swimming Canada CEO Pierre Lafontaine’s resignation and his new position as CEO of Canadian Interuniversity Sport:

“One simply cannot say enough good things about Pierre Lafontaine. During his time with Swimming Canada, both as CEO and as the head coach of the National Swimming Team, Pierre led by example, embraced new possibilities, and tackled challenges with the enthusiasm and determination of a true champion. Under his watch, Swimming Canada has produced truly world-class athletes, and can proudly sit among the strongest, best-organized and most well-respected National Sport Federations in the country.

“On behalf of the Canadian Olympic Committee, I wish Pierre all the best in his new role, and thank him for his extraordinary contribution to the sport of swimming in Canada.”
