Paula, I'm confused. You posted earlier that he was out of Campbell's and then removed the post. When asked about it, you said something about pending notification from the appropriate sources for protocol reasons. Mysteriously, the same day, his Official site puts up an announcement saying he's competing.
At the link below, there is a interview (translated from Russian) with Alexei. He clearly states that he had given the organizers his "refusal".
If this is so, then why hasn't USFSA or Campbell's or his Official site put up the accurate info? Are they trying to see how many more tickets they can sell before they announce it? Are they being dishonest or slow?
What's going on????
