Should British Olympic athletes be born in the UK?
British wrestlers are voicing frustration at seeing foreign training partners become members of the GB Olympic squad. Should only British born wrestlers be part of the squad?
The training partners are brought in from other countries to share skills, they can also seek citizenship while they live and work in the UK. British wrestlers are saying that they should not be taking the place of native wrestlers.
British Olympic teams have benefitted from the addition of foreign talent in the past. Jurgen Grobler OBE lead the GB rowing team to gold. Double European champion athlete Mo Farah lives in the UK after fleeing Somalia as a child and now competes for Great Britain.
Could foreign wrestlers who take on British citizenship increase the chances of GB collecting more medals? Should we encourage sportsmen and women from other countries to compete for GB?
