    They qualified as a host team...

    Otherwise when smaller countries host the olympics they'd never get to see their own nation represented in a majority of these events.

    I think most of them are half Japanese.
    So calling them "imports" would be inaccurate.

    American soldiers impregnated a lot of Japanese women. Plus foreign influx for the last few decades. So, yeah.

    If they're all pure, then how the hell do you expect them to compete against taller rivals if the average height of their roster is below six feet?
