American speed team member Alice Mckennis will not be going to Sochi. She will have surgery to remove the pins and hardware  from her leg instead and then concentrate on recovering for the World Championships next year.  http://skiracing.com/stories/alice-mckennis-elects-to-undergo-surgery-sit-out-season/   It's a tragic but well thought out decision. The article has excellent quotes on the situation, especially from her.  Now all remaining healthy women's speed team members can go to Sochi.
