  1. This is the roster of the athletes eligible/nominated by the different sports federations. If you're not on this list then you can't be selected for the Russian Olympic Team, no matter how well you do at their final selection events/national championships later this fall/winter. There are 63 figure skaters on the list but only 18 will be competing in Beijing (3 Men, 3 Women, 3 Pairs Teams & 3 Ice Dance Teams). There's been some chatter about the figure skaters on the list today on some of the message boards - it looks like the RFSF essentially just put forward the names of all of the skaters currently on the National Team (with a couple of notable exceptions) plus some junior skaters/teams who skated senior domestically last season but are skating junior internationally this season. I assume the same applies for all of the other sports on the roster - at least 50% of those won't be competing in Beijing.

  3. I don't think it's misleading at all. You're not reading it right. The article & the way it's worded are for the possible No-Olympix people and their supporters who will shout that "new contruction again will be required" for another round of hosting. The article DIRECTLY addresses that -- including apparently Univ. of Utah's dorms which it seems are now enough to host 3,000+ athletes.

  4. Stryker, it's ONE summer (and spring) for USC. They've been through this before in 1984. ALL schools and teams have contingency plans they can ALL live with -- even if it's just a few months. Also, have you not thought that maybe the alumni who fund these institutions' endowment funds, might take a little pride in having their schools (again) be part of something historic and transfomative for Los ANgeles? C;mon, think big. Build back better!!
