    Any one know Ches's racing plans for this outdoor season?

    I think it's sad that he seems to be trapped by the USA citizenship dilemma.

    Agreed. Speaking from a deep well of ignorance, I wish there were some way to hasten the process.

    But, he is still a citizen of Kenya, is he not?

    If hes not, then hes really in a spot as a man with no nation at all. Good luck finding visa help from the home office

    Of course. Why wouldn't he be?

    Yes, he's most likely still a citizen of Kenya...but (especially right now with his current marks) he wouldn't be competitive trying to make the Kenyan team but I think he could be in the 5000m for the USA.

    And I'm going to guess that his motivation is affected right now that he has no chance in either. I'm a Ches fan, so wish he could get his USA citizenship because that would jump start the rest of his career.

    As of February this year, he still didn't have a green card, and was struggling with getting his P1 visa renewed (the P1 visa is for professional athletes and entertainers). He's not going to be a US citizen in time for the 2020 Olympics, and 2024 is also unlikely due to the 5-year eligibility requirement (i.e. 5 years of holding a green card to qualify for citizenship).

    Sad situation. Does it seem to anyone else that obtaining USA citizenship is a bit too complicated?
