Simple as 1-2-3. Send all these athletes, along with others who onfuse ethnic pride with citizenship/national loyalty to Mexico, and let them see how much time and money they have to practice their sport rahtr than work 16 hours a day for minimum wages..
The parents left Mexico when Leo Manzano was 4 years old. He might be proud of his heritage, but his citizenship is American. He represents the USA in the Olympics. He should have saved his flag for a personal party, and not the world stage.
Others think the flag was a no no too.
A poll on the CBS Atlanta website showed that 83 percent of respondents think Manzano shouldn’t have carried the Mexican flag. I believe it’s more complicated than a yes or no answer, but can’t disagree. Athletes with dual citizenship are naturally going to have competing loyalties and mixed feelings. Yet, when they step to the starting line with a USA on their chest, there should be no confusion.
