Tuesday, August 30 2016 by SNTV
  • The Refugee Olympic team's South Sudanese athletes share their memories from the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Angelina Nada Lohalith, South Sudan refugee athlete:

    "The thing that I will never forget, the stadium, the opening ceremony. I remember it was so nice, so wonderful because I remember when we enter as the refugees, we were really cheered by many people."

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Angelina Nada Lohalith, South Sudan refugee athlete:

    "I will continue with sport and at least I have to make my future bright when I work hard, because right now I am looking forward to supporting my family and my siblings." 

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Yiech Pur Biel, South Sudan refugee athlete:

    "Like now I have passion in running because although I was not running for a long time I get something which can change my life. Because this one is not only for my family because I left them a long time ago, almost twelve years now, but now this one it gives whereby I can continue to achieve or to leave a legacy, to leave legacy to other people."
