    the US team has an olympic qualifying that is kinda stupid. if mondo, who is clearly the best to ever do it, were to miss or foul or whatever 3 times in a row, he misses the olympics on the US team. the qualifiying system is absurd.

    this has famously happened to various athletes over the years. americans who were clearly dominant have had minor errors in qualifying for the american team and been eft at home for the olympics. famously this happened to the best decathalete in the world when he botched a few pole vaults. same thing with spectacular gymnasts and figure skaters who took an unfortunate fall and were world champions who watched the O games from home.

    sweden doesnt do that. he is on the olympic team, case closed.

    He is probably a big deal in Sweden. What other sports do they have? Maybe hockey. And there couldn't be too many celebrities other than Abba. Here he would just be another sort of well known person.
