A country can decide to give citizenship to whoever they want. Great grandfather might work for San Marino, but probably not everywhere.

Thought I saw during the ESPN's NCAA coverage that his grandfather wrestled for Lebanon in the Olympics.  Not sure why they just didn't go there.

Really. That seems wrong. What's to stop Saudi Arabia from giving citizenship to Lionel Messi or Lebron James?

The announcer said that Amine's mother's grandfather came from San Marcos. is that true-- his GREAT grandfather allows him to claim being a Marinian?

$$$ Talks.  It's a strategy of that RTC to get their athletes competing at worlds at all costs.

Abounader has had a less than ideal experience representing Lebanon.

Nothing.  Their RTC just finds any country they can to take their athletes.  I guess Adam Coon must be descended from the Pilgrims or something (maybe tried, but failed to get UK citizenship off of that).

Maybe that's how Qatar seems to have a pretty good track team.

Yes! Deepak with a herculean effort. He has a nice easy next round demolition by Taylor lined up,  then the real fight begins. For Brozne.
