Statement from the Canadian Olympic Committee regarding the passing of Dr. Leroy Walker

Today, the Canadian Olympic Committee issued the following statement on the passing of former United States Olympic Committee President Dr. LeRoy Walker:

“Dr. LeRoy Walker has touched the lives of countless young Americans in his many decades of work in sport. His dedication, expertise and commitment over many years have helped shape generations of American Olympians. The world of sport is stronger for having benefitted from his leadership and his legacy of excellence will continue to impact the Olympic movement for years to come.”

-Richard Pound, Member, International Olympic Committee

 

“Legend, trail-blazer, mentor and scholar are words that do not even begin to describe the full impact Dr. LeRoy Walker has had on the sport community, both in the United States and around the world. He was a difference-maker in every sense of the term. While we mourn his passing, we also celebrate his long life of achievement, his dedication to sport across several generations and his great contribution to the Olympic family.”

-Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee
