Independent Olympic Athletes at the London Olympics 2012

These folks aren’t with any country, and they have the most swag.

Two are from a recently dissolved country.  But, on a more somber note, one is from the Sudan but refused to represent them after many of his family members were killed by Sudanese government sponsored forces and he himself was sent to a labor camp.

LOL they are so excited

I loved these guys so much. <3

Even the flag-bearer is excited.
