A quick google search would have showed you that while both her parents were born in Lebanon that her surname is an Armenian surname and that Lebanon is home to the 8th largest Armenian population in the world and was the first Arab nation to recognise the Armenian genocide. Also that Tina apparently attended an Armenian school in Montreal up to 7th grade.I remember when I was young when I would have actually thought an ice dance couple from Armenia were local skaters from the country rather than two Canadians (one of Lebanese descent) who bought their way to Armenian citizenship just so they could buy their way into the Olympics. Not to take away all the hard work they put in to at least be in the running for the final entry spots.
Something I would have brought up against Lazarus’ claims that they were victims of being from a small federation and thus painting them as poor and put-upon.
So disagree with their case they are trying to present but she seems to have a hell of a lot more connection to Armenia than some very popular skaters on this board who country hop with fewer connections to any given country they represent. And it never seems to matter in their cases where their partners come from...
