Olympics 2012: Guor Marial -- A Man with No Country, But Full of Country Pride

Officially, marathon runner Guor Marial isn't competing for any country. During the Olympic Opening Ceremony, you may have noticed four athletes come out with the Olympic flag rather than their country's flag. Three of the athletes were from the Netherland Antilles, which recently dissolved its National Olympic Committee. Marathon runner Guor Marial is competing officially as an independent, but he is truly representing South Sudan.
