Syrian Cyclists Found Support from the Cycling Community at the Berlin Velodrome (video)

These Syrian refugees came to Germany and the cycling community helped them get back to their training by donating clothing and equipment and providing a place to train. Now, due to a change in rules by the International Olympic Committee, refugee athletes will be allowed to complete in the 2016 Olympics.

Dieter Stein, the head coach for Berlin Cycling, "We want them to have the feeling they are welcome here. Sport brings people together."
