Subject: RE: If you couldn't make the olympic team in the U.S. but you could in another country, would you switch citizenship?
Recent history documents that many people actually do this, sometimes going to great efforts to acquire alternate citizenship.
And in fact you don't need the Olympic "A" standard - the "B" standard is good enough if the country you're switching to doesn't have anyone who has met the "A" standard. Often the other country won't have anyone who has met even the "B" standard in the event, so you are basically automatically in to the Olympics if you have/get citizenship and meet the "B" standard.
But you can still impress people by saying you are an Olympic athlete, because most people don't understand (or care) about the above.
