Canada judge rejects request


A Canadian judge has rejected a request by Olympic bobsled champion Kaillie Humphries to pursue her career in the United States, CBC television reported Tuesday. Humphries, one of the sport’s top drivers, had taken legal action to compel the Canadian federation to grant her leave to compete for the US team, after lodging a complaint about sexual harassment in her home country. But the judge in charge of the case instead decided that the federation had all the authority necessary to choose whether or not to let its athletes compete elsewhere. Following the verdict, Humphries’ lawyer Jeffrey Rath said: “She’s obviously very disappointed.” —AFP
