They are now basing every invite of AFP rankings, which are based on how many competitions you can afford to travel to. Invites are not given out off how well you do in the comps you compete in, it comes down to who competes the most (racking up points).
People like yourself who are pushing the sport so hard are suffering because you don't go to every single comp. I think the point system and selections needs to be looked at again. The athletes pushing the sport need to be invited to the biggest comps. There needs to be some wildcard spots that do not rely solely on results. I'm blown away that you don't have a spot.
I'm really hoping you get in Dane!!! You deserve it!!!!!
