She is running in a long-sleeved black shirt and tights, in the middle of summer, outside. And she’s still in the lead.
Tell me again how Muslim women aren’t tough?
HOW THE HELL IS SHE DOING THIS WHILE FASTING
EVERYONE PLEASE REMEMBER ITS RAMADAN
GOD BLESS THE MUSLIMS USUALLY I DONT ADD COMMENTARY BUT FRICK
So…if this was the big track and field event in Istanbul as their jerseys say, it was in March, which isn’t Ramadan, and it was indoors (which jibes with the look of the track surface). I’m not saying she’s not tough—she’s obviously a world class athlete—but this isn’t the Olympics, since their track and field portion doesn’t start until the 3rd. And if this were the Olympics, there’s a decent chance she wouldn’t be fasting anyway, as not all the observant athletes are.
(Apparently she’s also being lapped, but I don’t know if that’s true—I haven’t found the results of the race yet.)
