More than 200 athletes who went to Australia for the Commonwealth Games in April have chosen to not return to their home countries.

They applied for asylum saying they could face persecution at home.

Unlike those who arrive in Australia by boat, they are likely to be allowed to stay.

Al Jazeera’s Andrew Thomas reports from Sydney.
