I didn't understand something from this story...
On the one hand, he doesn't want to represent Sudan, after the civil war there. On the other hand, he can't represent South Sudan? Is that because there is no South Sudanese delegation? Are they not accepted by the IOC yet, even though they are recognized officially as a country?
And he can't represent the US yet because his citizenship hasn't come through. But which would he represent if he had the choice of both South Sudan and the US?
Whatever the case, I'm glad the IOC got one thing right. They sure as hell have seriously blown it by rejecting the minute of silence for the 40th anniversary of the Munich massacre.
