They have gone through displacement, discrimination and a lack of opportunity – but they have one goal in mind: winning a medal at the 2020 Olympic Games. Young stateless athletes from Iran, Syria, South Sudan and Cameroon have been forced to flee their homes and leave their families behind. Now the Olympic Refugee Team is giving them a chance at a new life. Full of drive and renewed hope, they are not just striving to shine on the world sporting stage for their families back home and their new refugee camp communities – these determined young athletes are also fighting for their safety and to find a new place in the world.
