On 21 October, the Canadian Olympic Committee, in partnership with Cross Country Canada, organised a podium ceremony for Beckie Scott, who was officially presented the silver medal of the 5km pursuit race of the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games.
Scott was attributed this medal after the IOC’s decision, taken at its Session in June 2003 in Prague, to withdraw the silver medal from Russian Larissa Lazutina, who tested positive for a prohibited substance. IOC member Charmaine Crooks attended the ceremony.
