#EOR is an acronym of the French name ‘Equipe Olympique des Refugies’. Members of the Refugee Olympic Team wore the inscription EOR while they were competing. 29 individual competitors were chosen by the International Olympic Committee to represent the 82 million refugees around the world at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Here, the UNHCR, their host, says “thank you” to all these competitors.

As the sun sets on the Olympics, we thank every supporter who has cheered for the 29 members of the second-ever Refugee Olympic Team during #Tokyo2020.
Thank you for standing with refugees, including these incredible Olympians!
We are proud to partner with the IOC to support the Refugee Olympic Team athletes to help fulfil their Olympic dreams.
We look forward to Paris 2024 where, again, refugee athletes will have the opportunity to compete on behalf of the millions of displaced people worldwide. #UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency
