So, rather than explaining it to the panel of members from the IOC, and getting them to understand the science of it, so that they can have a better understanding of it to make a rational decision based, you would just prefer them to say, "NO! You can't compete. We think it's an advantage, and we are not going to take the time to ask questions and get an explanation and make a decision based on expert opinion?"
That makes a lot of sense.
