Multiple National Connections Save Olympics

I'm a Canadian of Ukrainian descent who lived in Japan for 14 years and who has a Japanese wife.

This combo is making for an interesting 2004 Olympics experience! Canada has not been doing well, to put it mildly, but Japan and Ukraine are ripping along.

I'd rank my loyalty priorities Canada -- Japan -- Ukraine, so while Canada flounders, I gain some satisfaction from my adopted country Japan, and the country of my ancestors, Ukraine.
