oh but there is-- every problem has a solution .
here,s 2 ideas
1.. the male of the partnership would have to be a citizen thru birth , or naturalisation .
2. a permanent residency of 5 yrs min. ( again for male )
What the current system does essentially is this.. it demote its natural born competitors to a sub level, which is not entirely their fault. the europeans have had far more access to top level training before they even enter, for e.g., the States . it has always seemed a little disingenuous to me, that one could be a representative just by " showing up " . it does , however , speak highly of those who are from there when reaching semis and finals .
