See An American Skier, Who’s Not Very Good, Compete for Hungary at the Olympics
Some people think it's admirable, some think it's unfair. What do YOU think?
Elizabeth Swaney isn't a
bad skier, but she's definitely not up to the caliber of her fellow Olympians. And yes, she IS competing at the Olympics. But how?
She wasn't good enough to make the American team, so she's competing for Hungary, where her maternal grandparents are from. She's well educated; she attended Cal-Berkley and Harvard, and she followed all of the rules - she traveled to competitions all over the world to qualify.
Clearly, a lot of it has to do with her financial status - she (or her family) has the money to do this. But, she did it fair and square...to a point. Skiers from around the world are split, and so are fans.
So...what do YOU think?
