Today history was made: for the first time ever, Saudi Arabia will be sending female athletes to the Olympics. Hooray!
I can’t imagine how excited the two women must be! Judo competitor Wodjan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani and runner Sarah Attar will not only be representing their homeland, but they will be breaking ground for all of their Saudi sisters who have Olympic dreams.
If that weren’t enough, Qatar and Brunei will also be sending women to the Olympics for the first time as well!
Now that’s what I call a way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Title IX! 🙂
