First American to skip Olympics due to Zika may be a trend!

According to a story in People magazine, American cyclist Tejay van Garderen has withdrawn his name from Olympic consideration due to concerns about the potential effects the virus could have on his pregnant wife. Bravo for him. I'm just surprised that NBC, who has the exclusive rights to broadcast the games, didn't try and opt for Venezuela! Such a location would not only have the added drama of a out of control pathogen but also could be viewed against the back drop of a country teetering on the edge of civil war! Well, perhaps in another four years...
