ImmigrationProf previously posted about the “stateless” South Sudanese marathoner Guor Marial, who is competing under the Olympic flag in the Olympic marathon on Sunday. Yesterday, I learned that Marial's friend and advocate is Brad Poore, a UC Davis School of Law alum, lawyer, and elite runner in his own right. Poore advocated for Marial to compete in the Olympics as an independent athlete.
I remember Brad as a sincere law student and always was impressed with his dedication to law and the sport of running.
UPDATE (AUG. 12): Marial finished 47th in the Marathon with a time of 2:19:32.
