Special: Refugee Olympic Team, Brazil 2016
Since the modern Olympics began in 1896, over 200 national teams have vied for glory at the Summer and Winter Games. Now, for the first time, a team of refugees will compete as well. At the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janiero, 10 refugee athletes from four countries will compete together as the Refugee Olympic Team. Among them are two swimmers, two judokas, a marathoner and five medium-distance runners. Their athletic prowess and resilience is a tribute to the courage and perseverance of all refugees – at a time when the number of people displaced by violence and persecution is at the highest level since the Second World War. http://www.unhcr.org/rio-2016-refugee-olympic-team.html The selection of music played today and some of the words comes from the Top 10 Olympic Songs webpage by Short List.
