South Sudanese 5 #TeamRefugees

Five members of #TeamRefugees are originally from South Sudan, and will all take part in track events. South Sudan is the world's youngest country, having only gained independence in 2011. At the London 2012 Games, South Sudanese athletes also participated under the IOC flag because their country had not yet established an Olympic Committee.
