Thread: Saudi Arabia's first female track athlete

    Saudi Arabia's first female track athlete

    Wearing long pants, a long-shirt and a head covering, Attar stood out from her opponents in tank tops and shorts. She finished her race in 2:44.95, 43 seconds behind the heat's winner. Still, the crowd in London cheered as she crossed the finish line. They knew that just by showing up and competing under the flag of a country that limits women's rights, she was accomplishing something that couldn't be measured by a medal.

    Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
