I'm usually a very empathetic person, but I am still really mad at the fiasco with Rachel. I don't think it is at all heroic to show up and try to slob your way through such high level competition when we have so many other girls who are healthy and could have skated much better. Surely USFS had alternates visas. Since USFS headquarters is about 2 miles down the road from where team Rachel trains, it is unbelievable that no monitoring was going on. USFS just seems to have checked out of their active management/oversight of the state of the US team. I also don't think I am gonna look at Rachel in the same light anymore....seems many fans are pissed!
