    I think it meant "who gives a crap about about a track meet at the end of October"..especially when you are in Grade 12.

    It means they do not think it would be wise to miss 1-2 weeks of school in order to attend the Youth Olympics.

    Definitely -- we should always choose 5-10 days of school over a (likely unique) chance to meet with young people from all over the world in a high-class sporting event .

    BTW, whoever said this, have you ever heard of homework?

    Given the marks needed to get into a university these days an athlete with borderline grades would be better served not to miss class for the sake of a sporting event.

    You do realize that scholarship offer is not worth s--t if you don't have the marks to be accepted by the school?

    Going or not going is a choice made by the athlete and their parents it's none of our damn business.

    Not just ANY sporting event. It's the Youth Olympic Games!

    Comes around only every 4 years and almost 4,,000 U18 elite athletes attend. An experience to cherish for a lifetime and a chance to watch over 30 different sports and some fun disciplines at the highest level.

    Any kid with half a brain can surely catch up on 2 weeks of missed schooling early on in the school year?

    I would reason that anyone who has the discipline to make it this high level in the athletics arena will be (similarly) able to pull together a two-week study schedule that will prevent any kind of academics compromise.
