  1. Wow! This is very inspiring, what they are doing. At the same time, I am saddened by the fact that people aren't safe in their own countries and are forced to flee. I'm praying for change and will continue to show kindness towards each person I come in contact with.

  2. there are autonomous regions all over the the world which must compete under foreign flag and on the other hand 5-6 refugees have there own olympic team..?

  3. Why can't they compete for the country they are living in? It's better than competing for a team named "refugee". Just asking, no disrespect.

  4. We are all Refugees in some point in our lives, worldwide. Even in America. The word, " Refugee" has many meanings to it, doesn't always mean war. Even sins and additions can make you a Refugee. So if you ask me, I believe all 7 billion people living on Earth could be a Refugee. A Refugee of addition, A Refugee of sin, even a Refugee of a broken family. This list goes on and on.

  5. greatest politically motivated team. they are there not to represent real refugees but to brainwash people into accepting those "refugees" flooding europe at the moment.

  6. instead of playing games,they should be trying to find work. or are they going to ride the refugee gravy train forever.

  7. just wondering how these people got the funds to go to Rio, more hand outs that could of been put to better use.probably all the money that got wasted in getting them to Rio could of been used to house refugees or for food for refugees.even refugees ,can be selfish.i under stand everyone has a dream, but there is a time and place for everything. when your homeless ,jobless, it's not time to go play games especially on someone else's CV dollar.

  8. I am sickened to see people's horrible reaction to refugees. Y'all need to learn someone and show some empathy, they r also human, they had a hard time. Just wish them good luck can't u?

  9. but they're "refugees" which means they have left their war torn countries, and are now living somewhere else. So why can't they represent their new home country? Wouldn't it have been better if the refugee living in Germany could have represented Germany? Germany should have allowed her to. That would have been more kind and inclusive. Why does she have to represent a team of stateless people? It highlights the exclusions of these countries. Not really something to celebrate is it?
