ALIGHT (FORMERLY AMERICAN REFUGEE COMMITTEE): The Refugee Olympians

In Rio, they ran away with our hearts. We’re talking about the Refugee Olympic team – a team of athletes, each one of whom defied all of the odds to compete in the XXXI Olympiad. A year later and under the patronage of Tegla Loroupe and the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation, these athletes and several more are keeping the dream alive. 43 refugee youth live together and train together at a camp in Nairobi.
