GALAXY QUEST: In Toronto, Randy Starkman reports Gold Medal-winning Canadian speed skater Christine Nesbitt last weekend at the world championships wore the logo of Dutch telecom company Galaxy Group "over her heart and on her left shoulder." Nesbitt is a "huge name in the Netherlands and speed skating is televised there like hockey is [in Canada] so they'll get tons of exposure." Canadian athletes and teams "have to take it where they can get it," as there was "no windfall" for Gold Medalists in the '10 Vancouver Games. Nesbitt did sign a deal recently with compression wear company CEP Canada, but it likely "wasn't for significant dollars" (THESTAR.com, 1/31).
