I think it shows little class putting an online petition on the site, especially when one individual is the target. Louis Luchini did what he had to do to get nominated, finishing high enough AND getting the B standard. Schmke, above is right in what he says, it is to make sure someone gets to the Olympics. The people ahead IF they had got the B standard in the last two years would have been picked instead.
This is the Johnson's site but I see it as very wrong that they should try and make another hard working athlete feel bad as they chase their Olympic dream in line with the rules set out. First step was to get the Olympic B standard, second was top finish ahead of other B standard athletes, finally, now he has the RIGHT under the rules to chase the time. The trials are just the trials, just one step on the road. Why should an athletes that has not got the standard, even though they knew what they had to do, get selected over someone that played by the rules.
If Luchini gets the time or not, he has done nothing wrong, he still has the right to continue his Olympic dream. People on a website don't have the right for personal attacks on an individual, to bully him off the team, especailly when he played by the rules and did nothing wrong.
