Australian snowboarder Torah Bright said she is appalled by an email sent by the father of a teammate who lashed out about supposed funding and support issues among the group.
Bruce Brockhoff, father of snowboard cross athlete Belle, sent a lengthy email to journalists on the eve of what was supposed to be the men's event.
In it he railed against a number of Australian Olympic Committee and Olympic Winter Institute officials, claiming bias in the funding system towards gold medal favourite Alex `Chumpy' Pullin.
Despite in part being linked to the dispute - Bright admitted to starting the social media hashtag "teamoutcast" to show support for fellow snowboarders Belle Brockhoff, Jarryd Hughes and Scotty James, who believe they are under-funded and resourced - Bright said Bruce Brockhoff went too far.
"Mr Brockhoff should be held accountable for his words," she said.
"I am speechless. I am appalled actually.
"Belle has put on such an incredible show, she rode so well and to have this have any shadow over her is beyond me."
Bright says the Olympics are about the competition.
She expects Pullin, Hughes and Cam Bolton to compete well at the snowboard cross event, which was rescheduled for Tuesday following heavy fog.
"It's about these guys competing and it's not about parents meddling and using someone else as a vehicle for their own purpose," she said.
"We need to just forget any of that craziness and move on."
Asked if had she spoken to Belle, who finished eighth in snowboard cross at the Games, about her father's comments, Bright said she wanted to "move on".
"Mr Brockhoff has his own agenda and I want nothing to do with it," she said. "We are shredders and we are here to do our thing."
Bright is hopeful the funding issue would soon be addressed but took umbrage with Bruce Brockhoff's timing and the levels he went to in the emailed letter.
The Australian Olympic Committee has consistently denied there are funding issues and that money given out to its snowboarders is based on results.
It said Bright and James rejected scholarships.
The national Olympic body said it would address Bruce Brockhoff's specific concerns after the men's snowboard cross event was complete.
