In this May 26, 2016 photo, Yolande Mabika, a refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, takes a break during Judo training at the Reacao Institute in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as she trains in hopes of making the cut for the first Olympic team of refugee athletes. In 2013, Mabika and another judo athlete from Congo traveled to Brazil with the team to compete at the World Judo Championships. They say officials left them at their downtown Rio hotel for three days prior to the competition without food, money or passports. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
