New York Times: Kosovo’s Olympic Dream

NYT Kosovo 1-page-001 NYT Kosovo 2-page-001

Last week I was in Pristina for the International Olympic Committee’s historic decision to admit Kosovo as a full member. Although still not recognised as a full, independent state, Kosovo’s athletes will now compete under its own flag at Rio 2016. I met sportsmen and women who are now training for Rio. They explained the politics that had stopped them from competing at the elite level. The amazing photos were taken by James Hill.
