I know I'm risking evoking the wrath of die-hard Kwan fans, but let's be honest, she isn't at the top of even her own game. Hasn't been for a long time. Her competitive showings have been rare over the last few seasons and they seem hand-picked.
I just have to ask, would any other athlete with sketchy performances and several injuries even think that they might be awarded an Oympic team spot? Isn't an Olympic berth supposed to be earned?
The writing has been on the wall for awhile now. Maybe it's time for Kwan to actually read it and make room for those little girls that used to pick up her flowers off the ice. It's their turn in the spotlight.
