I remember this story from the refugee camp in Jordan about a gentleman that was organizing wrestling training sessions within the camp to help the time go by.

I was hoping to find a link to his story. 

However, typing in "refugee wrestling" in YouTube got me a handful of stories of wrestlers who are refugees.

I understand that the IOC is stating the team will comprise of just 10 athletes. However, there may be enough wrestlers out there to field a roster.
