The two-time Olympic bobsled champion asked the courts for an injunction forcing the national governing body of the sport to release her.
Humphries intended to compete for the United States.
The 34-year-old from Calgary has also filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the bobsleigh organization.
Her dispute arose from a harassment complaint she filed with the organization against a coach.
A BCS lawyer says there wasn t enough evidence to support her claim.
Team Canadas excellence is built on successful partnerships with both individual athletes and their National Sport Federations," the Canadian Olympic Committee said in a statement to CTV News. "Kaillie Humphries and Bobsleigh Canadas work together over the past 15 years, has not only produced podium-topping results, but has raised the profile of bobsleigh in Canada to new heights. The current situation is extremely unfortunate. The COC has offered appropriate assistance to both parties and hopes that a resolution to the present issue can be found.
