Swim For Your Life

Episode 2 of 2

The extraordinary journey of refugee Yusra Mardini, who fled war-torn Syria, travelled through Europe to Germany, and was selected for the refugee team at the Olympics in Rio.

In the second programme charting how Syrian teenager Yusra Mardini fled her homeland and was selected for the refugee team in the Rio Olympics, we hear how this young competitive swimmer was able to start training again in Berlin, and follow her as she travels to Brazil.

This is a Czech Radio/BBC Co-Production. Czech Radio reporter Magdalena Sodomkov√° first met Yusra in Serbia last year, and has since followed her journey through Europe and accompanied her on her latest adventure in Brazil.

Producers Brit Jensen & Tom Alban.
