Humphries suing Bobsleigh Canada for $45 million for blocking her release from team and breaching contract
Olympic gold-winning athlete Kaillie Humphries has been denied release from Bobsleigh Canada by a Calgary judge who found the governing body has the discretion to decide whether to allow an athlete to compete for another country.
Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Charlene Anderson ruled Humphries could have initiated a dispute resolution process earlier through Bobsleigh Canada but said she “instead chose to wait and bring this application on the eve of U.S. push trials.”
