Guor Marial, South Sudanese marathon runner is proud of taking part in the Olympics, even after taking the 47th position in the marathon, his performance in the just completed London Olympics has inspired his nation, winning is not always the focus,  he gets the GOLD in my book for participation. According the Sudan Tribune, South Sudan’s youth and sports minister Dr. Cirino Hiteng Ofuho stated on Monday that it was unfortunate that Marial was not representing South Sudan but said he hoped that "we will have many South Sudanese runners, athletes and other games at the next Olympics".
