Is sportsmanship lost in Olympics?

Did I read this right -- Shani Davis and Brian Hansen of the U.S. Olympics speed skating team used the 500 meter sprint for training? I would bet there is a skater who would have loved to skate in this race but did not make the team because these two and others wanted to use the spot on the team to train for their event.

It's bad enough that the Olympics have been taken over by the professionals but when sportsmanship is lost, then it's time to to stop watching and caring about them.
