Ibtihaj, The First US Athlete To Compete Olymoics In Hijab
Ibtihaj Muhammad, an internationally- ranked saber fencer, qualified for 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio last weekend, making her the first US athlete to compete in the games in hijab. The 30-year-old from New Jersy, won a bronze medal at the women's Saber World Cup in Athens, Greece. The points she earned made it impossible for any other American competitor to undo in her rankings ahead of Olympics.
