IOC launches “1 in 100 Million” to celebrate the hope and inspiration of the Refugee Olympic Team for Paris 2024

Championing the Refugee Olympic Team as they get set to compete at the Olympic Games Paris 2024, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has today launched the “1 in 100 Million” campaign. It aims to shine a spotlight on the 36 inspirational athletes who have faced incredible challenges to reach their start line, and calls on everyone to get behind the team when they represent the over 100 million displaced people on the world’s biggest sporting stage.

The campaign begins with a graphic-novel-style short film that introduces the formidable sporting talents and unique personal stories of Refugee Olympic Team athletes, including Cindy Ngamba (boxing), Dorsa Yavarivafa (badminton) and Ramiro Mora (weightlifting), and Refugee Athlete Scholarship-holder Kavan Majidi (judo), whilst also drawing attention to the shocking scale of the global refugee crisis.
