CALGARY — A Calgary judge is expected to rule on whether Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton must release Kaillie Humphries to compete for another country.

A decision is expected Tuesday after lawyers for both sides presented arguments Monday in Calgary court.

Humphries, a two-time Olympic bobsled gold medallist, filed a harassment complaint against a coach last year alleging he verbally and mentally abused her.

BCS conducted an internal investigation and said in court Monday there wasn’t enough evidence to support her claim.

Humphries filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against BCS last week in an effort to force the organization to release her.

The 34-year-old Calgarian now intends to compete for United States.
