A few weeks ago we told you about the first ever Olympic Refugee Team.

As we count down the days to the Olympic Opening Ceremony, we're rooting for the ten athletes who will be competing for Team Refugees.

Who are these refugees? Where do they come from? All this week we will profile them so you know who to cheer on when their turn to compete rolls around!

Don't forget to pledge your support on Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram @TeamRefugees

For now, check out this video from the Olympic Committee!
