Although I can understand why the three skaters that got the spots on the world team got them, I really hate that Johnny's poor performance at Nationals cost him a spot on the world team. He has done so well over this past year up until now, and his third place finish at worlds last year secured that third spot for this year. Instead of taking the easy way out, he tried to fight through two programs at Nationals, and it cost him. It's really a shame...I hate to have to essentially hope someone else will get injured in order for him to get to go.


I don't want anyone to get injured but it does seem strange that they excluded Johnny. No wonder he feels more love for other countries.
