Volunteer Post: First Qatar Woman Athlete: Noor al-Malki

Who’s ready for the Olympics? I sure am!

In the 2012 London Olympic Games, Qatar is sending their first female athlete to compete. She is just over 5 ft. tall and weighs just under 45 kg. Her name is Noor al-Malki.

While others are worrying about breaking records,  Noor is more proud of the fact she is part of Qatar’s process to break down gender discrimination. She is part of the new generation of Qatari women who can now play sports. Let us cheer her on for the historical significance she is representing!
