    Default Travis Lee

    He can probably make Chinese freestyle team in a second. Does he have Chinese citizenship? Could he get it?

    Not that many good freestylers with Chinese names out there.

    He was born in Hawaii, he's an American citizen by birth. I've heard that he's hurt so he probably won't be at Nationals, but if he can get healthy, I think he's got as good a shot as anyone after Zadick.

    Pretty sure he's Korean Big.

    Ok then, what about a Korean freestyle team? Is he North or South Korean?

    I'd be very sure to assume he is South Korean, if Korean at all, which is a very common background for people living in Hawaii. I do not know if he is Half Korean, not. I would imagine, having gone to High School in Hawaii, he is a US Citizen who couldn't compete in Korea.

    You will meet very few "North" Koreans living in the United States. He may be half Japanese as his middle name sounds it.

    I highly doubt even if his family was North Korean he would compete (or be able to) for that shitty disorganized communist team.
