Why is he is selfish? Because he wouldn't give up his individual accomplishment so that Hedrick would achieve his individual accomplishment? It's not like they know each other or are best friends. Speedskating is an individual sport, they should have had the relay not conflict with the individual events.
I'm not even talking about his selfishness in not skating for the US to get a certain medal in the team pursuit.
That is reprehensible itself.
However, I'm talking about that chip on the shoulder interview he did with the female reporter. He acted like a total a1 asshole.
No debating that my friend. It is what it is.
