Surprising news from the Vatican city: the religious microstate, under the leadership of the pope shall henceforth be his own track team. The first members are priests, nuns, pharmacists, members of the Swiss Guard and even a 62-year-old professor who is in the library of the Vatican works.
“We dream of the flag with the Holy see, and see between the other delegations at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games”, said Monsignor Melchor Jose Sanchez de Toca y Alameda, the chairman of the team at the official presentation.
In the past, the Vatican, all football teams and cricketteams chief executive, but this is their first official team. They hope that this will be a member of the international athletics federation IAAF and to participate in the Games of the Small States of Europe and the Mediterranean Zeespelen.
