Whoever gets bumped from the Olympics because of Kwan should get to go to Worlds, at least. Kwan doesn't deserve both Olympics and Worlds.
looking for fresh blood
I don't think she is completely faking injury, but I bet it is exaggerated. She landed, what, one triple at Marshall's? She finished off the podium at last year's Worlds. She is not the Michelle that she once was. Michelle is grace on ice, and I am a fan of hers, but the new system isn't one that really works to her advantage (in my opinion). All I am saying is, what is the safer bet to get to the Olympics... skate (slightly injured, more or less) in nationals and possibly finish off the podium or get a bye? I am sure this is something she considered.
