Visa: Yusra Mardini Swims On

Olympic swimmer Yusra Mardini will leave Rio without a medal. She didn’t qualify for the semifinals or finals. But in the big picture, it doesn’t really matter. Yusra is a refugee from Syria, and currently living in Germany. She’s a member of the first Refugee Olympic Team. Last year, Yusra helped swim her boat to safety, pulling 17 refugees behind her. Visa pays a stirring tribute to her in this spot.
