The aid work couple is representing the Dominican Republic, IIRC. I think it's cool that they feel such a profound attachment to a country to which they do not have blood ties. As strong an attachment, I daresay, as what some athletes feel toward countries to which they have blood ties only by accident of birth.
BTW, some Americans who have said that they want to represent only the U.S. -- although theoretically changing their citizenship would be feasible:
- Alex and Maia Shibutani (re Japan)
- Max Aaron (re Israel; he is Jewish)
