Tara McNeil new Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton president; Storey didn't seek re-election
Calgary sport physiologist, 53, has support of current and retired athletes
Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton has a new president.
Tara McNeil, a Calgary sport physiologist, ran unopposed at the conclusion of the embattled sport organization's annual general meeting on Saturday night in Whistler, B.C., as former president Sarah Storey did not run for a third term.
A group of current and retired bobsled and skeleton athletes put the 53-year-old McNeil's name forward for the position.
The more than 70 athletes have been calling for the resignation of Storey and high-performance director Chris LeBihan since last March, amid what they've called a toxic environment of maltreatment within the organization.
Storey adjourned the federation's AGM in Calgary on Sept. 29 before a vote could be conducted.
BCS said it had received credible information there were potential irregularities in the verification processes of voters from the provincial sport organizations.
