So easy to say you would skip it when you arent the one that invested the massive amounts of time, taxpayer/family/personal $ and crazy dedication to get to the pinacle of your sport only to skip it and perhaps not make it in 4 years. On top of the fact most olympic sports are only watched by the masses during the Olympics, chance to get fame, endorsement $ and perhaps become a national hero. Seriously, you would have to be a moron to self boycott, but i guess it easy from your armchairs :P
