Hartsuyker bypasses Olympic issue

LOCAL Federal member Luke Hartsuyker has remained tight lipped when quizzed about Australia's lack of Olympic gold medals in London.

Mr Hartsuyker is the shadow minister for sport but his office was quick to bypass the issue.

"Our current stance is to not comment on the issue," Mr Hartsuyker's media manager Greg Pierce said.

"The Coalition is currently formulating its new sports policy and until that has been completed we are not in a position to discuss the issue.

"We are currently receiving plenty of feedback from stakeholders in regards to the sports policy which has been a big part of the process so far."
