I loose respect for athletes that just changes nationality just to be sure to be selected for the national team or to be sure to join a stronger national team.

A lot of countries start to "buy" strong athletes from other countries. What's the point of a national team if the teammembers comes from other nations?
Then you could just as well only have club team tounaments and don't have any national teams.

A good example is the Greece softball team at the olympics. Only 3 to 4 speaks Greek, the rest of the team only speaks English and don't understand a word Greek because they are all American.
But in professional sport we see more and more countries that buy players from other countries to represent their own country. It's just like club teams with multible nationalities.
