5 out of the 10 refugees going to Rio Olympic Games will be from the Tegla Loroupe Training Center for Refugee athletes.
"These refugees have no home, no team, no flag, no national anthem," IOC president Thomas Bach said after the organisation's executive board confirmed the group at a meeting in Lausanne.
The team will be headed by TLPF president Tegla Loroupe, the first African woman to win the New York City marathon and a world record holder in several long-distance competitions.
Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation's effort to establish peace among pastoralist communities continue to bear fruit after more than twenty cattle which had been stolen were returned to their owners in Arabal, Baringo.
TLPF President and team of reformed warriors intervened and mediated peace talks between the Ilchaamus and Pokot communities after tensions following the raiding of an Ilchamuus village and several animals driven away by armed Pokot men.
