UC Davis Lawyer Helps "Stateless" Marathoner Compete in Olympics

Guar Marial and Brad Poore

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.
