I didn’t say that quote but I guess I agree with the comment in spirit. 

Anyway, a slightly off peak Ringer is better than an exhausted and glycogen-depleted Ringer. The process has improved and will never be ideal since it’s not designed to be. It’s designed to give medalists a break and that’s exactly what’s hspeonding. That’s not “bad for the world team” as you say. 

There is no rule set that both maximizes the chances of a medalist trying out and avoids any gamesmanship. As I said, impossible.


I agree with the last paragraph completely. I think what many, including me, we're hoping was that the athletes themself would avoid the gamesmanship. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case.
