A new Olympic Games ad by Argentina stars Fernando Zylberberg, a star field-hockey player, training for London on the Falkland Islands. "To compete on English soil, we train on Argentine soil," the spot says. Problem is, the Falklands are a self-governing British territory over which the two countries have fought forever.
