At least the US didn't buy Lagat. He had to earn his citizenship just like every other immigrant who has earned citizenship in the last 40 or so years. He wasn't paid handsomely by the government, given a new "American-sounding" name and passport, and suddenly don a new jersey and citizenship, a la Bahrain and Qatar.
Notice how when Kenyans speak of Lagat it is almost universally with respect, despite his citizenship change, and despite their desire (and occasional team tactics) to beat him on the track. However, from what I've seen most of the top Kenyans universally despise the guys who run for Bahrain and Qatar.
