    Just a thought, but I do know being one year from the Games (where the major endorsements and contract perks come, among other things) brings out the conservative in a lot of athletes. Molehills become mountains.

    (Not that I necessarily agree with this, mind you.)

      If you are injured, you cannot be in the shape of your life.

      Just in time for a late-season time-trial race against past-their-season-peak athletes.
      How convienient!

        I think it's pretty ungracious to badmouth Suzi like this. Look at todays email from T&F News about the many injured athletes from around the world. Injuries are par for the course in sport and it is terrible for a top athlete to get injured just before a competition. However it happens pretty regularly. She's not making excuses, simply can't be competitive so why race? And I am someone who is not a Suzy supporter and got into it with GH and Prego about her a few weeks ago!

            Good point. Unfortunatley the dollar rules in many cases. But, if they were confident in their abilities they would be there. At the end of an athlete's career there are two competitions that are remembered - WCs and Olys. The true world class competitors do what ever possible to be at their best, or at least show up, to these events.
