"When I ran for the first time, it was such a special feeling...this is my talent and I love it," says Sudanese #refugee  Omar Idriss, 24, who placed 9th out of over 32,000 participants in the #Beirut  International Marathon.

In total, 16 young #Sudanese  refugees are competing nationwide. Their athletic success and persistence transcend the difficulties they face as refugees in #Lebanon

We salute their perseverance!
