Competitor for {{{1}}}


This template should be used for athletes who have competed for different countries. There are many examples from the break up of the USSR as well as athletes from the UK competing at the commonwealth games. Other athletes have switched nationality, for example Wilson Kipketer was Kenyan but competed for Denmark too.

This template is part of the medal record series of templates for building a medal record table.


For competitors who have competed in the same sport for the same country, the templates should be ordered Country, Sport, Competition1, Award, Competition2, Award and so on.
