From Asylum Seeker To British Olympian


In May, 26 year old Tsegai Tewelde, a former asylum seeker from Eritrea, was selected to compete for Team GB in the marathon at this year's Olympic Games in Rio. He secured selection after finishing as the second highest placed British athlete in the 2016 London Marathon. Tewelde and five other Eritrean youth athletes sought asylum in Glasgow in the aftermath of the 2008 World Cross Country Championships which had been held in Edinburgh.
