I wouldn't change the age rule at this late date for this Olympics either, but if Asada gets hurt before 2010 and that keeps her from skating then, she and her people will have every right to be mightily pissed off about the rule ever being made in the first place. The rule is a load of crap, and whoever thought it up ought to be ashamed of himself for not considering this possibility. It really didn't have anything to do with anorexia, but was really caused by the epidemic of injuries among young skaters. Well, they're still skating just as young, an they're still getting hurt, so what good did the rule do? Jack squat, that's what!
