Kenworthy Switches Teams

I’m sorry to report that Gus Kenworthy has switched teams.  I know – you’re devastated.  But don’t worry – he’s simply switched Olympic teams.  Turns out, Gus was born in the UK and calls his mother “British through-and-through.  She has been my #1 fan for my entire life and has proudly stood at the bottom of the mountain waving the stars and stripes in support of me for two Olympic cycles.  Now, in what is sure to be my last Olympic appearance, I’d like to return the honor by proudly holding up the British flag for her.”  Isn’t that a lovely story?  But I don’t buy it.  When previous Olympians have done this, it’s because the competition to make Team USA towards the end of their career is fierce, while joining a foreign team is almost guaranteed.  On the other hand, I could be wrong.
