Wrestling for American territories

Recommended Posts

It's not as difficult as you'd think. But if you want to go that route it's probably easier just to buy citizenship in some 4th world African country. For most of the places you listed you'd actually have to spend a substantial amount of time living there to prove you're a resident.

The issue is not citizenship alone. If a wrestler represented a country, there is a 2 year waiting period before he/she can enter for another country @ the WC and 3 yr for the Olympic Games, unless granted a waiver. Any wrestler who has wrestled for a country in Budapest, for example, and has not yet established residency @ a new country, he/she would not be eligible to compete @ either the 2015 WC or the 2016 Olympic Games without the approval of the original country. What's more, if he/she won a medal, the new country must compensate the original country--on a scale up to as much as 300,000 Euros. There are some exception for those who have been granted legal asylum and for those under the age of majority.
