    They are not advancing Erik Paulsen because he is not a US citizen. I think this sends a poor message to the foreigners who travel far to this competition. He climbed better than me yesterday, yet I advance and he does not. While I’m happy to be climbing in finals, it simply does not seem fair.

    First of all this is a selection event for the US Team. USA Climbing takes the top 15 US competitors to finals. If a European finishes in the top 15, a new place is made for an American competitor. “They are not advancing Erik Pulsen because he is not a US citizen” This is simply not true. Magnus Mitboe advanced. He is not a US Citzen. He finished in the top 15. Erik is not a US Citizen and finished 16th and did not make finals (READ:he did not climb well enough to qualify under the established rules). Had he been taken to finals, he would have taken the spot of an American in finals. Erik could have the potential to win this comp., at the expense of you, or (some other America) competing in the World Cup.

    ” “They are not advancing Erik Pulsen because he is not a US citizen” This is simply not true.”

    If Erik were a US citizen and placed 16th yesterday, he would be competing in finals.

    “Erik could have the potential to win this comp., at the expense of you, or (some other America) competing in the World Cup.”

    If Erik was to win the comp because he was a better climber, I would be completely accepting of that. I see having foreign climbers in this competition as a plus. This way, the American climbers can get experience competing against the people that will be at the world cups.

    I agree that what was done was completely within the rules of the ABS. What I’m saying is that I disagree with the rules, the same way someone might disagree with a scoring system or format. After living in a country where I’m not a citizen, I really see some of the negative effects of nationalism, and wish that all countries would strive to be more welcoming to foreigners.
