GB's Leon Rattigan supports foreign wrestlers' Olympic bid

Commonwealth bronze medallist Leon Rattigan says he has no concerns with foreign-born wrestlers competing for Great Britain at the Olympic Games.

George Cornelius "Con" O'Kelly (29 October 1886 – 3 November 1947) was an Irish born sport wrestler who competed for Great Britain in the 1908 Summer Olympics, where he won a gold medal. In March 1908 a wall collapsed on him while he was fighting a fire at a sawmill. He recovered from damage to his back and shoulder in time for the 1908 Summer Olympics in London, where he beat Jacob Gundersen for the gold medal.
