 49 people will participate in the selection of the refugee delegation for the Tokyo Olympic Games


According to the International Olympic Committee, a total of 49 refugee athletes are supported by the Olympic refugee fund. They are scattered in Kenya, Luxembourg, the United States and other places to train, covering 11 Olympic events, including track and field, wrestling, judo, taekwondo, cycling, swimming, badminton, boxing, shooting, karate and weightlifting.

Before the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, the International Olympic Committee selected 10 refugees from 43 athletes to make their debut in the Olympic Games in the form of a refugee delegation, including 5 from South Sudan, 2 from Syria, 2 from Congo (DRC), 1 from Ethiopia, and participated in track and field, swimming and judo.

In 2005, the 10-year-old was forced to leave his hometown because of the war. After three days in the jungle, he was rescued to the refugee camp in Nairobi, Kenya. In 2015, he graduated from high school with the support of the Olympic refugee fund and engaged in long-distance running training. The experience of the Olympic Games has brought great changes to my life, and also gave me the opportunity to receive education and training.

At present, Jesse Poole bill is a student of the Central Community College of Iowa. He insists on training while studying. Like other refugee athletes scattered around the world, he hopes to change the situation of more refugees through his own experience. At the same time, they also hope to stand on the Olympic field.

Not surprisingly, when the Tokyo Olympics opens next summer, the refugee delegation will be larger and more refugee athletes will appear in more events. I hope to be included in the refugee delegation again, and we will be a better team than in 2016, doing more in the Tokyo Olympic Games, said yech pur bill
