With the Olympics in full swing, I wanted to take a minute to recognize the athletes of Lesotho who will be participating in these Olympics Games.
True, the Olympics really aren’t related to the work we do at TTL, but I love any excuse to celebrate this small nation I’ve come to love.
And you never know…maybe one day in the future one of our babies will be competing in the Olympics!
The story of Lesotho’s Olympic athletes provides a unique illustration of the struggles and strengths of the Basotho people.
Lesotho has a small…only five athletes…but proud Olympic team.
The video below highlights Olympic marathoner, Tsepo Ramonene.
