In terms of the Syrian Olympic team not taking part in the Games or having the right to, this is something the Syrian committee refuses.
Athletes, sports and the Olympics is outside the realm of politics. As members of the Syrian Arab Republic and as athletes our only responsibility is to represent the Syrian flag in the games in London.
– Feras Moula, Syria Olympic Committee Secretary General
Our flag is represented by the white, red and black with two green stars and this is what we will raise up to the London sky. So of course we will take part and without a doubt our flag will be raised."
