As long as they go through the proper channels to compete sure. Why the hell not?

I say good for them for going for it. The Olympics has always been about World inclusion and this just reinforces more of that. Sure, they might not be competing for any particular country, but that's what makes it great as they are competing as a team with members representing different countries.

I see no problem with this. I'm not saying it is bigoted to be against immigration, but I really see no reason to be against this? They didn't even specify it was the current wave of refugees.

Normally I would be all for this but I think at this point someone needs to set in and save them from Rio. Haven't they suffered enough?

The Rio Olympics are going to be such a shit show it won't even be funny.

It's fine as long as they accept ALL refugees and not just the syrian/iraq ones.
