I read he’s made @1$million this year plus Olympics so if he’s feeling tired from this year why go to Worlds. He also had an injury before Olys so why take a chance.
Take a chance on what? Unless he’s at risk of some kind of truly catastrophic injury, which I doubt, I can’t think of a single thing he has to lose. If he wins, great; if he loses, no one besides skating fans will notice; and if an injury does knock him out for a while, he probably wasn’t going to compete anyway. I’m surprised, but it’ll be fun to see him out there again.
