TRENDING TUESDAY 10 RIO OLYMPIC REFUGEE ATHLETES WITHOUT A COUNTRY

 

I proudly waive the flag of my beloved country. 10 Rio Refugee Athletes enter this year’s Olympic games dreaming of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, but have no country with whom to celebrate the potential fruits of their labor. Every Olympic games, there are athletes who compete without a country for various reasons. This year, 43 refugees were whittled down to 10 athletes, and for the First Time have joined forces to compete as a unified team.

TRENDING TUESDAY ZIKA MANIA

Mosquitos creep me out on a psychological level and are carriers of the “Gross” factor above and beyond what can be described in this blog.
