The world seems to have forgotten the deafening sound of gunfire that rocks Juba streets as it focuses its attention on the Rio Olympic Games. These refugees have fled from war, literally running for their lives.

Now they will run for glory, for hope and just like other athletes heading to the Olympics conquer their fears and secure a win for humanity.

"It is not about winning gold, but to show the world that even as a refugee, you can do whatever you want given a chance," said one of the athletes, Anjelina Nada.
