    That seems a little unfair?

    It is already an established practice to field multiple teams in the Olympiads.

    Turkey 2012. Respective standings of the teams: 42nd, 48th and 151st.

    Russia 2010. Standings : 2nd, 6th and 13th.

    Germany  2008. Standings:  13th, 25th and 42nd.

    You can consult www.olimpbase.org for other instances.

    As to whether it is fair or not. There is a chance that these friendly teams throw points to one another according to needs unless there are rules to prevent such "favourable" pairings .
