Luis Yanez Back on the U.S. Olympic Boxing Team

Last week, we learned that Luis Yanez -- one of the U.S. Boxing Team's Captains -- had been kicked off the team for skipping training.

But today we learned that Yanez is back on the team, after publicly apologizing for his absence from training:

"I sincerely apologize to head coach (Dan) Campbell, to my teammates, and to USA Boxing for not only breaking the rules of the Athlete Code of Conduct, but also for my lack of candor regarding the circumstances of my absence from the Resident Program."

For the sake of winning gold medals, it's great that Yanez is going to Beijing. But, of course, winning isn't everything.

Should Yanez be barred from competing in Beijing? Vote in the survey located on the right of this page -->>

Then bookmark this page so you can check back for the results next week.
