Saudi Arabia women to compete in Olympics for the first time

Saudi Arabia will let its female athletes compete in the Olympics for the first time. Officials say the country's Olympic Committee will oversee participation of women athletes who can qualify.

Until now, Saudi Arabia was one of three countries that did not allow women to participate in the games.
The other two are Qatar and Brunei and they are also going to allow their female athletes compete in the London games that will begin July 27.
 
The female athletes will compete but they will be dressed "to preserve their dignity". (photo above)

Surprised about Qatar.
God bless these ladies. It's not easy for pioneers. Look at Sania Mirza (muslim female tennis player from India), they gave her so much stress over clothing and religion, and don't think it didn't affect her game. I sometimes wish she had a stronger support system so she could just play!
More power to these women.

THE WORLD WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTA PLACE IF ALL WOMEN COVER UP MORE!!!!

MUSIC VIDEO ARE NO MORE MUSIC VIDEOS THEY ARE NOW SEX TAPES, LEFT AND RIGHT ALL YOU SEE IS NAKED WOMEM!!!!!!

ABEG THEY SHLD PROTECT THEIR DIGNITY JARE......

β£αɱɱɨɛ Alhaji said...

They can only participate in few sports...they are opening up sha!

Swimming is out of it...all curves, bolds, torches of the ladies would be stared at...something they are supposed to cover with their Hijabs.

And guess what; Hijabs would restrain people from sprinting, streamline in swimming, swing a discuss, play football, do the High Jumps, Pole-Vault, Do lawn Tennis (Table Tennis can fly), Tripple-Jumps would be out of it, no show for cricket, volley ball, squash, etc...Ah! Gymnastics!!!

What's remaining for them to participate at? I'd love to watch.

It will be nice that they compete with their gowns via Second hand blackberrybold.5 and Panasonic Air Conditioner remote.

Anon June 25, 2012 11:07 AM; yes, there's the H&S side to it as well. I think Blatter banned a female football team from covering their heads due to H&S concerns.

Thank God they have started allowing them, It was that woman that went rebellious that drove a car that set the women free from encapsulation. why should their men be driving and they are not allowed to drive. why should their men go to higer places and they are left @ the background.

D truth Uncensored said...

That's a very good move! Thank God they are beginning to allow their women express themselves. However I hope their outfits would not be a hindrance to maximum performance, because they look too comfy to me (better as a sleepwear). http://www.frediliadtruthuncensored.blogspot.com

In the pictures Christians portray Holy Mary show that she always cover a head scarf that looks like the ones the young ladies in the picture are wearing. Christian ladies only remember to cover their heads when they are in their churches or about to pray. If those people define define and modesty in dressing as not exposing your body and nakedly dressed, then what is your argument? Let those people rest jare.

Linda, why you put that in quote? Wetin be your business? Na so they wan dress so e no concern you. E no better pass those girls whe dey wear bikini then later, people go rape them because of the thing whe their eyes see?

@Anonymous June 25, 2012 10:26 PM. I am sooooo very sorry dear.I didn't know calling someone else your surname will give you such heartburn.(BTW Mumu, i typed "foolish", so get over yourself pls, nobody's interested in stealing your identity!)
Read Beammie Alhaji's comment and understand why i think they are stupid(sorry for borrowing your name again)
P.S- If you love to advocate for them soooooo much, better catch a (Dana) flight to Saudi Arabia, and advise them that they could trip and crack their brain boxes open like water melons on the track. We don't need such gory sights at the Olympics. Azzho!
