National sports teams often reach for genealogical connections to fill their player roster.  Matt Janney, writer, editor and rugby player, writes for @CodaStory about 
how he tried to find a link in his heritage to play for Russia’s rugby team. 
And he discovered his Georgian ancestry, Georgia and Russia. 
I worked on illustrations for this story. 
Animated illustrations were shown during ZEG storytelling festival in Tbilisi (Georgia).
