The kid is talented. No doubt.
He has Swedes in his family. Cool.
He's just NOT A SWEDE by any stretch.
Prediction: He will NEVER live in Sweden in his life.
He's grown up as an American, trained on American soil, eaten American Groceries, received the support of American Schools. On and On.
And, the first chance he got he decided to compete as a Swede, and completely avoid having to go through the tougher American Team and Olympic Trials.
The USA current lacks a lot to desire in many European folks eyes. Mondo, decided before that to abandon his country and compete for Sweden.
It's insulting. He took the easy way out. And he's not a guy who needed to do that.
Let the debate and the insults begin... This is LRC after all.
