Congolese Judokas #TeamRefugees

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has endured conflict for decades. Two of its best judokas will compete in Rio as part of #TeamRefugees. Both Yolande Mabika and Popole Misenga both live in Brazil, and have learned more skills and technique while training there.

Support them both on their Olympic journey @TeamRefugees on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat!
