Wonder why Canada did not attend this.....

Jim not ready for a big tour?????.

It's not anything to do with Jim's fitness. I think partly it's budget, and partly the fact that Ina and Sonja both have families and the team is just back from Europe and will be leaving for Prague in less than two weeks.

For those of you not in a wheelchair try and imagine what it is like for those athletes to travel around the world, not only routine wise but the toll it put's on there body. The travel schedule set out for team Canada has that in mind so the athletes can maintain there health,training and pace.

With all due respect, Team Canada's handlers will not put the team at rik without Jim at least being CLOSE to 100%.....too close to 2010 for negative thoughts.
