to run for canada
If he's lived in Vancouver for years it begs the question why were we giving him lottery funding in the first place?
Welsh, born in bridgend
Well, that explains it then!
Mind you, thinking about it - outside of actual races when did you ever hear anything about him? If he'd actually won a marathon the British press would be all over him.
By the same token he clearly wasn't running for GB out of any sense of patriotisom.
So all in all - who cares I suppose?
It's modern sport, innit?
Don't agree with it; you should get one 'pick'...once you've represented one country at international level (above U16, let's say) that should be it, you're committed for life. Otherwise, 'international sport' becomes just a high standard club match.
I dunno', is it a bit like one of us changing jobs for a better pay and conditions?
It's not patriotic but, he in effect has been sacked by UK-A. Would you work for your boss for no money except tips?
Contraversial I know but this was always going to happen. It's his profession and a short one at that.
