yhe, the thing is the Chinese team, along with the British team, ... swimmers, rowers, bike riders, sailing, so forth, so on, ect ect.
Even the USA has athletes who use to be on the Australian team now representing the USA.
& it's not so much that the Australian coaches betray their nation an coach another country's team for money.
If an Australian coach wishes to coach the Chinese team or the British team, that's all fine an well. ( it's a free world.)
If an Australian coach ( swimming ) or any other sport wants to turn his or her back on their own nation & coach the Chinese or the British for a few extra dollars a year, that's their call.
But were it pisses off Australian's ( like me ) is this.
If an Australian coach decides to turn his or her back on Australia an coaches the Chinese or British team, for a few more dollars, i say let them.
That's right .......... Let them piss of an move to sh#t hole, dust bowl China & train the Chinese in some dirty, toxic Chinese river in the sweltering heat or polluted Chinese city, living in some Chinese hut. ( that's fine )
Or if they wish to coach the British team in the dismal British weather, the cold rain, the bad British hygiene, the diseases & inferior living standards ......... Again that's fine it's a free world.
But no ...... they don't go and live in china or Brittan do they ...... No rather they bring the Chinese & British Athletes over here to Australia, where they use the Swimming pools & beaches, rivers, bike tracks .... ect ect, that the Australian tax payer payed for.
while at the same time preventing other Australian's & future athletes from completing their own training programs.
These athletes from around the world use Australia's sporting facility's & benefit from Australian tax payers funding & in return do nothing for Australia in return, they don't even contribute to Australia through paying tax or charitable services .......
They Blow into Australia, use our facility's, push Australian's out of their way & prevent Australian's from using the very facility's we payed for & then blow out of Australia again.
& then Australia wonders why it's done so bad in the medal tally at this Olympics.
