Canadian sports fans across the country are in shock as a three-time Olympic medalist will no longer be competing for Team Canada in any future Olympics. It was announced that a Canadian Olympian is suing Bobsleigh Canada to compete for U.S. Since the announcement, people have a lot to say about it.\nIt was reported Thursday night that Kaillie Humphries is suing Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton to seek release by the organization so she can compete for the U.S. team. This comes after more than a year of not competing in the sport following her filing harassment claims to the organization last year.\nOn Friday, the Olympic athlete released a statement about the situation and confirmed that she wants to be released from Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton.\n"I want to be clear that I am not choosing to leave Canada. I love this country! I am leaving Bobsleigh Canada because I can no longer be a part of what I believe is an unsafe work environment and I do not want to be forced into retirement," said Humphries in a statement.\nHumphries is a two-time gold and one-time bronze medalist in the Olympics and has numerous gold, silver and bronze medals from World Championships in the sport of bobsleigh. She even carried the Canadian flag at the closing ceremonies of the 2014 Olympics and she was also named Canada's top athlete that year.\nIn August 2018, she filed harassment complaints with the Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton. According to the CBC, she is still waiting for the organization to finish its internal investigation and she is suing "for blocking her release from the team and breaching their contract relating to athlete and coach code of conduct."\nThe organization told CBC that it would not be commenting on the specific case until the investigation is complete.\nThree-time Olympic medallist Kaillie Humphries breaks down while talking about her decision to leave Team Canada for the United StatesFull story: https://t.co/2IFQfZljBU pic.twitter.com/arfl8d0vfu— CBC Olympics (@CBCOlympics) September 13, 2019\nSince the news has been released and as more information has become available on Friday, people have taken to social media to voice their opinions about the situation.\nSome have been less than kind about Humphries decision to sue Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton and move to the U.S. team, even going so far as to call her a traitor.\n@BobsledKaillie NOT cool... not impressed.... I'm not even going to listen to your reason why. #Traitor— Trina Lee (@TrinaLee85) September 13, 2019\nI support Kaillie Humphries in having her harassment complaint addressed.I do not support her plan to obtain US citizenship to compete under their flag instead. Team Canada needs to get things together and solve this. Sometimes the process takes time to work through.— Cory Boehm (@Cory_Boehm) September 13, 2019\nWhy is @BobsledKaillie suing? 𝗜𝗢𝗖 requirements state that an athlete can represent another country provided at least 3 years have passed since a competitor last represented their former country. Millennials: "I want what I want and I want it now."https://t.co/iSXlQ26yhg— J M Jones 🇨🇦 (@IAMWRITE) September 13, 2019\nThe whole story sounds pretty self serving.— Rob Capretta (@CaprettaRob) September 13, 2019\nThis Kaillie Humphries story is very sad. Sad that it got to this point, but also beyond disappointing that she has been plotting this leave for a long time, and I am having a hard time seeing this as anything other than a betrayal. No true Canadian would ever compete for the USA— Matthew Carbno (@mattycarbs) September 13, 2019\nNot much of a Canadian. Does she really want to support the values of the United States? If there are issues here isn’t it better to make things better here than turning your back on your country?— Adam Bull (@TorontoTalisman) September 13, 2019\nDespite the negative reaction by some people, a lot of Twitter users sympathized with Humphries and are sad to see her go.\nSad ongoing saga about #KaillieHumphries #harassment #BobsleighCanada. Why is this not getting resolved? What happened to @BobsledKaillie complaint? Why is this harassment lawsuit being hushed? Heartbreaking that Kaillie will leave @TeamCanada for US! WTF is going on? @MarnieMcB https://t.co/2pmkP5eX79— Marg Bartlett💪😄❤️🇨🇦😘 (@sparkyb1) September 13, 2019\nChoked for Kaillie Humphries. I hope Canada can earn her back. https://t.co/ORvDk5GB3s— Michael McCubbin (@McCubbinLaw) September 13, 2019\nGood for you Humphries . Stick to your goals. Organizations always look after and protect themselves. https://t.co/4RSz4DxjaR— True Blue (@piceaglauca) September 13, 2019\nSo incredibly proud of the strength, advocacy, and leadership of Kaillie Humphries. Sadly, Team Canada says goodbye to one of the all-time greats. #OurLoss https://t.co/NGWVcpF8lB— Russell Reimer (@Manifesto_Sport) September 13, 2019\nHard to think of many athletes who've been stronger or better Ambassadors for Canada and girls in sport than Kaillie Humphries. I'm sorry she's been put in this position, and hope she gets the resolution, answers, and changes she's looking for.— Will Murray (@Will__Murray) September 13, 2019\nBobsleigh Canada should’ve ACTED expediently on the harassment investigation. I hate losing a Decorated Canadian to compete for TeamUSA, but “workplaces” are limited & #KaillieHumphries career shouldn’t have to end if harassment is occurring in hers. Best of luck @BobsledKaillie https://t.co/VYrjTxXgqS— Jacquie G (@jezziebezzie) September 13, 2019\nJon Montgomery, skeleton athlete and host of The Amazing Race Canada, came to Humphries defense on Twitter late Thursday night.\nUm-This ain’t right!What can Canada do? I got nothin- but I got mad RESPECT for this woman and I’ve had dealings with Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton... She needs help and sliding for the USA is not an option for Canada. But if this plays out the way it’s going, I don’t blame her!✊ https://t.co/XPYQgbypd7— Jon Montgomery (@jonmonty) September 13, 2019\n"This has been the most difficult ordeal of my life and I want Canada to know that competing for you, and winning for you at the Olympics, will always be the highlight of my career," said Humphries.\nAccording to Global News, Humphries can only join Team U.S. before the international deadline if Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton releases her by Sept. 30.\nHumphries is marrying an American former bobsleigh athlete this weekend and Devin Heroux, a CBC News and Olympic Reporter, believes that the process of getting American citizenship will soon follow.\nThere are stories everywhere.
