Well that wasn't so hard. Was it?

That should have been the only question about this all along :P

I believe the woman in question specifically for this thread stated that she wears a unitard under "looser fitting" clothes.....NOT a tight singlet and that a tight singlet would not be modest enough for her to compete in. So it appears as though she's still S.O.L. (I could be mistaken, but from memory, I believe that's what she said)

Re: Muslim weightlifter's wish to wear modest clothing triggers rules debate

It would be nice to find ways to be more inclusive in our world rather than not. I think we have a lot less to fear from those trying to enjoy the same things we do albeit within their religious dictates than we do those who don't endeavor to join our sports passions.

And if all women want to join in on wearing singlets with Hajibs than by all means do so only if to cheat. I'm sure there is some irony in that given Americans general distrust of Islamic culture right now.

Here's some sporting one just so you can cheat...

Ms. Abdullah did compete in the national championships, presumably with the modified costume, and placed 5th in the women's 48kg weight class.

Cool. It's too bad she only finished with 60% of the first place total.

Maybe it's because her clitoris was cut off just after birth? Pure conjecture on my part, I admit, but who knows.

I think it's understood that women's totals to qualify for nationals are on the low side. Qualifying totals are based in part on how many people made the total during the previous year.

Did you look at the disparities between totals in any of the other weight classes? Or the men's classes for that matter? That kind of disparity is not so uncommon, especially since women's qualifying totals tend to be set low. Actually, the lightest men's class is the same deal.
