One of the saddest thing I have seen recently is Refugee Olympic Team attending Olympic games 2020, Tokyo.

With over 82 million displaced people worldwide, we are living in the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War.

This is the second time the refugee team will be competing. The first time was at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2016. The team has almost tripled in size since 2016, from 10 to 29 members, and comprises athletes from 11 countries living and training in 13 host countries. This is also the first year that there is a Refugee Paralympic Team.

In 2015, 65 million people had been displaced from their homes as a result of conflict or natural disaster. In that year, more than one million refugees entered Europe after fleeing wars in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia.
