April 4/12 8:11 am - Sudden Passing of CSC Pacific VP Dr. Gord Sleivert

Posted by Editoress on 04/4/12

It is with great regret that Canadian Sport Centre Pacific (CSC Pacific) announces the sudden passing of Dr. Gord Sleivert, Vice President of CSC Pacific, on the evening of April 2, 2012 while he was in Montreal attending meetings with Swimming Natation Canada and working with CSC Pacific staff at the 2012 Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Swimming Trials.

Gord had been with CSC Pacific since November 2003, helping establish and build the centre’s performance service team that helps power podium performances for Canadian athletes and coaches. 


"Dr. Sleivert was a tireless supporter of sport, and of cycling in BC and Canada. " said Kurt Innes, Director, Sport Development
CSC Pacific

CSC Pacific Chair, Giuseppe Liberatore said, “CSC Pacific is deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of our Vice President, Dr. Gord Sleivert.  During his time with us, Gord’s dedication to the advancement of high performance sport was felt at many levels across BC and Canada.”

Reflecting on her colleague’s enthusiasm and vision, CSC Pacific CEO, Wendy Pattenden, said, “Right up until his passing, Gord was doing what he’s always done during his eight years with CSC Pacific – tirelessly supporting athletes and coaches to win more medals for Canada.  I have lost a close friend, and our team at CSC Pacific has lost a beloved leader, a supportive mentor and an individual who had an incredible impact on our organization.”

Gord is survived by his wife Kari,and three children Benjamin (15), Brianne (15) and Lachlan (12). Our thoughts and prayers are with Gord’s family at this time.
