      Canada skating with a partner from the United States. It took her many years to get US citizenship. They ended up winnning a gold medal in ice dancing, or silver, cannot remember which. But, her coach was calling members of Congress and everyone she could think of to get this immigration thing done before the Olympics.
      Or she would not be eligible to skate for the United States.  Even in her case, she apparently had to wait more than 5 yrs and jump through hoops which rather surprised me. As I would guess the US olympic committee has some pull...but then again, she had no family in the United States but trained in the US.
