I disagree about it being the right of the athlete to decide whether or not they are fit to compete.
By being part of that team, accepting organizational funds, the lifter agrees that the organization will make some decisions on their behalf. Don't like it? Don't be a member of team. I think you will agree with that last bit, Chris.
The USAW sets the rules in advance, and the lifters follow them. The team was selected as a result of these rules so according to the procedures- no one has crap to say about it. If the USAW now does not like their own qualifying procedures, they should go cry in their milk, not attack their own elite athletes.
