RE: Lagat GOLD in 3k
Wow. So you would have forfeited your chance to run in the olympics in which you were the favorite for your event (anyone remember EL G's 2004 before Athens?), just to call yourself an American for a few weeks longer? Kenya does not allow dual citizenships and therefore Lagat would have been banned from international competition. Would you really have done something different than what he did? I know 99% of us would not have.
I have met Mr. Lagat twice and, as the son of an immigrant, I find what he has done for this country to be truly admirable. Bernard is a role model not only because of his athletic and personal achievements, but the grace and honesty with which he has completed them. I really pity that you do not feel the same way.
He came to the US to live a better life; at one point didn't we all? I just can't comprehend why someone would have gripes with that fact.
