Saudi Arabia: Where are the women sport heroes?

Saudi girls deserve sport heroes too, says Jillian, at a post on women in the Olympics at Kabobfest. “Little girls in Saudi Arabia (which I will use as an example from now on, given that Qatar's population equals that of Boston) deserve to have strong heroes too,” she notes.

    I AGREE 100%, ITS A PITY THAT WOMEN IN THOSE COUNTRIES ARE DEPRIVED OF ,ACTUALLY ALOT OF THINGS. sport and physical activity is great to do and with the health and wellness aspect , it’s quite ridiculous to not allow participation. that why the obesity rate is so high .

    I’m a personal Fitness Trainer, and I play Provincial Cricket …as a women Its great to excel in the career i want and on the sports field,and not having any obstacles …Its great……I hope things get better in these countries with women in sport etc. And I would want to visit these countries to coach and train women.
