That's how all trials based on objective standards work. Not that it makes the situation better, especially since they announced there would be a 3rd spot.

Re: Casey Burgener NOT on Olympic Team now? wt*???

we are praying casey gets to lift. as has been indicated our beef is with the iwf that told us we have 3 slots. casey's lifts were predicated on going after the 3rd slot hence note that he did not take a 3rd cln and jerk.....there was no need as he won the 3rd slot and became a member of the olympic team. if casey does not get to lift then he has been denied an opportunity then to make the team. we are betting that with all the drop outs that casey will lift. he is being taken to china, he has his visa, he is being outfitted, mrs b and i are going......HE IS LIFTING!!! come on say it with me: HE IS LIFTING!!! over and over again!!!!

Whoever on the Olympic Board decided to allow China to host the Olympic games needs to be smacked upside the head. What a disaster that country is with their current "leadership". Is it any wonder that after decades of freedom, Hong Kong is ridiculously wealthy compared to the entire rest of "not-quite-free" China?

Coach, we don't have cable TV, but I think I'll subscribe just so I can watch Casey lift IN THE OLYMPICS in a few weeks.
