Wilson Starts Comeback Journey
Eddie Pells of the Associated Press featured Blaine Wilson today in a feature story detailing Wilson’s quest to qualify for a fourth Olympic Games. Pells writes:

“I’ll be doing it to win,” he said. “People who say, ‘Oh, I just want to go see what I can do.’ No. You want to win. If you don’t, I don’t know if I want you on my team.”
That’s Wilson — brash, bold, not afraid to challenge people, challenge himself, set the bar high in a sport where mistakes and weaknesses are not easily masked.
