Famous Faces: The Olympians

In the Famous Faces series, I try to profile high-achieving and influential Muslim women, who wear the hijab. In this post though, I've got not one, but twelve ladies who are making us proud. These twelve are the hijab-wearing Muslimahs who will be competing at the Beijing Olympics. You can read about a few of them here.

Ruqaya al Ghasara, 100m and 200m for Bahrain:

Waseelah Fadhl Saad, 100m for Yemen:

Eman El Gammal, fencing for Egypt:

Shaimaa El Gammal, fencing for Egypt:

Shaimaa Abdul-Aziz, table tennis for Egypt:

Shimaa Hashad, shooting for Egypt:

Heba Ahmed, rowing for Egypt:

Homa Hosseini, rowing for Iran:

Najmeh Abtin, archery for Iran:

Sara Khoshjamal Fekri, taekwondo for Iran:

Robina Muqimyar, 100m for Afghanistan:

Sara Khoshjamal was also placed at no. 22 by Time magazine in its top 100 athletes to watch! Also taking part is Samah Ramadan who is competing in judo for Egypt.

Any other sporty readers out there? Who are your favourites out of these ladies?
