    Anyone know why Chris Knierim is stuck in China?

    According to twitter it's his birthday and he's stuck there.

    A few of the American skaters stayed behind. Madison Chock and Evan Bates were taking pictures of themselves (find Maddy on Instagram, if you have an account) on the Great Wall.

    Yes, re Chock/Bates -- and Pechalat/Bourzat -- staying behind.

    But Knierim's situation seems to be something different. According to his on- and off-ice partner Scimeca, who herself is back in the U.S., he is "stuck" in China.

    Lost or heavily damaged passport might be it. Usually it takes a few days for the US Embassy to issue emergency passport/ travel docs to allow him to get back home, and to get clearance from Chinese Immigration on the original visa that was in the lost passport. Only other thing I could think of is an acute infectious illness and we've had no indications that he's sick.
