    Who from ISU is an Olympian this year?

    I know Jake Varner, Lisa Koll, and Ian Warner (Canada). Are there any other Cyclones competing in London next month?

    Edward Kemboi (track) should be for Kenya in the 800m but was put down as fourth place. In the Kenyan trials he clearly finished 3rd (qualifying for London) only to be listed as 4th on the final results. The whole situation is really fishy

    edit: I'm a track nut so thats how I know all this

    That sounds sketchy. Is there an appeals process?

    Not really, Kenya is a weird country when it comes to running. Theyre obviously really good but their whole T&F federation is very political.

    He was a finalist to make the team and was given a tryout, but ended up getting cut. I believe he was the only collegiate athlete to make it that far, so it's nothing to be too ashamed about.

    Add Guor Marial to the list! Glad to see the IOC backed down on trying to make him compete for Sudan or not at all.
