Expected decision on the one hand, but nonetheless a ridiculous and embarassing one for many reasons.

 

If Walsh/Michaud plan to continue skating together, I hope they will seriously consider switching citizenship and go somewhere they are respected and appreciated.

Brown is more established, but leaving Malinin off the team after that performance is certainly questionable. They represent two very different styles, Malinin is more of spinning top, while Brown is more technically proficient/maturely choreographed skater. In my opinion, Brown is more representative of the past generation of figure skating, while Malinin is more representative of the present/future generation of figure skating.

Brown is a fan favorite, but he's so overscored, and he has a low point ceiling. He shouldn't be on the Olympic team. It's simply a case of USFS giving the fans what they want.
