Mike, I hear you but I don't think it is totally irrelevant. It carries benefits. And, Mike Burgener mentioned it to me and seemed positive about the possibility.
Mike, It basically means he was an alternate- my own words. If you had the option, would you chose to be an alternate on the Olympic Team versus having no claim on the Olympics? He can put on his resume that he is an Olympian. There are health care, career assistance, college financial aid, and other USOC programs for Olympians- within a certain time frame. They used to apply for the Pan Am Games as well. They promised them to me due to the 1991 Pan Ams but they have forgotten that promise now and/or policies have changed last I was told. So, he wouldn't have these benefits without being named to the Team as far as I know.Cheers
The athletes have asked the USOC to handle the votes. The first and most important vote to make Casey an Olympic Team member and two to pay him the USOC placement dollars taking his Olympic Trials total and placing that total into the final results that would pay him $10,200. We at USA Weightlifting are waiting on the results from USOC.
