Among all the big numbers we'll hear broadcast at the lavish ceremony for the opening of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, whether it's the 5,000 people volunteering at the event or the 10,500 athletes competing in it, the number 10 will perhaps resonate most deeply with the world.
That's the number of members who comprise the UN-backed Refugee Olympic Team.
At the close of the "parade of nations" ceremony, these 10 athletes will walk just before host country Brazil and, if only for a brief moment, turn the spotlight on the world's staggering refugee crisis.
For many of the 3 billion viewers watching the spectacle around the world, those 10 members will conjure up images of the plight of hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees who are struggling to leave their troubled nations behind.
The team of sportspersons (five from South Sudan, two from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, two from Syria and one from Ethiopia) doubt that they'll win medals, French newspaper Le Monde writes. But as Pierre de Coubertin, the father of the modern Olympic Games, once said: "To take part is more important than to win."
