Some of the statements in this thread just crack me up.
Why on earth did Tanith have her wisdom teeth pulled in an olympic season? That is absurd to me. They were in this long, they could have stayed in for 4 more months.
Well, the wisdom tooth was infected....I mean, there's only so long you should allow an infection to remain in a body.
When I had surgery for my wisdom teeth, my cheeks swelled up like a chipmunk's and I was stuck in bed for a few days...so I can't help but sympathize with Tanith, even if the timing may be a bit too convenient.
Her surgeon probably wants her to rest so the infection doesn't spread. Infections can take longer to get over and really hinder training. Do I thinks she's lying-No. Do I think they are being overly cautious yes and rightfully so.
I hope everything turns out ok. I would much rather them missing out on the GPF than the Olys.
