Congrats everyone! But I thought that Michael wasn't able to attend WOC.

Congratulations to all athletes! Great thanks to selection committee on very sound decision, could not argue a single point! Back to training, and good luck this summer!

Perhaps I am a few years behind but I don't recall the publishing of any reasoning before. Regardless if this is a new development or not, kudos to the selection committee for putting it out there.

More importantly, congrats and best of luck to all the athletes, both those who are and who are not headed to Sweden.

Michael has made arrangements with the U of M, thus no longer interfering with his travel plans should he make the team

Congratulations to all of the athletes, and good luck this summer! A commendable job by the selection committee. I also would like to credit Eddie B. with valiantly pushing for increased transparency in the process. This is a change for the better.

Is there any reason why 5th place overall on the TT list is selected ahead of 4th place overall on the womens side of the house?

From the attached document explaining the selection process.

The RP selected Team Alternates with strength in sprint and relays

The likely reason would be that an alternate would be called upon to fill an empty spot in the sprint and not in the forest races.

Aaah. Not sure how I failed to read that.
Kinda negates the point of an overall TT score.
