This happens in the olympic too..didnt we(The US) take Bernard Lagat from Kenya, who was born an raised in Kenya, I believed competed for Kenya? If its allowed to happen at the olympic level and the olympic committee is okay with it...
Barnard Lagat came to the US in 1998, lives here and has been a naturalized citizen since 2004. He started competing for the US after that. I am completely ok with this. If somebody moves to another country, resides there and becomes a citizen there is no problem in my view.
