A spectator carries a programme as fans arrive at the Olympic Stadium for day twelve of the Olympic Games in London.
She should be so proud of herself.She represents her country like all the other athletes and her country should be proud too.There is hope in this cruel and crazy world.
Can you please stop your right wing abuse of people that have religious convictions.
Get over it there are religious people in the world and will always be here .
So stop this racist abuse of her and well done to her and congratulations
That applies to the Saudi girl, Sarah Attar,as well.
Well done to the Palestine woman. Especially for having the guts in such a racist country.
Good for Palestine's Woroud Sawalha for representing and participating in this amazing international event!! Who care's what she's wearing...remember Cathy Freeman from Australia who wore a full body suit back in the 90's Olympics/Commnwealth Games!! No big deal!!! Peeps just stop the hate and enjoy the games!!!
Not many people have the strength these days to stand up for what they believe in when faced with a big wall of criticism and abuse - this girls got strength.
And of course there is still a country offically known as Palestine - another very ignorant remark which these places are usually full of.
So I guess page 3 is respectful to women? Funny vision of what respect is.
Well done to her. Must have taken hard work and determination. She has achieved something most of us only dream about.
As a comment on the outfit issue. I do think the outfits the athletes are wearing are getting too skimpy. Of course she is allowed to run in a pair of running leggins and a long sleeve top. London is cold when you come from Palestine. It is not like she is running in a full hijab. Lighten up, guys!!!
This girl is running like this because of her own religious beliefs. If she wanted to dress different she could have. Look at all the other Muslim girls from Tunisia, Turkey, and Ethiopia etc. Look at the marathon runners some of the top girls are Muslim. With this girl she is running during the holy month of Ramadan. She is a brave woman who is simple put, religious. Out of interest we keep hearing the theme tune for Chariots of Fire. Does the name Eric Henry Liddell ring any bells? The Scottish athlete who in 1924 ran only for the glory of god and would not run on the Sabbath?????? Or are we suggesting we have an atheist Games for those who find athletes with religious beliefs offensive. .
