Thanks for the unique coverage of Muslim women in the olympics

28th Oct 2016

Sir, Thank you once again for publishing Muslims who won medals at the Rio2016 Olympics. Your exclusive list comparing 2016 with 2008 and 2012 Muslim medallists is quite unique.

What I also liked is breakdown of not only the countries the Muslim medallists represented but also breakdown of gender. We should be proud that the number of Muslim women medallists tripled since 2008 Olympics. It shows Muslim women, from Muslim and non-Muslim countries also make huge contributions in the Olympics.

And Muslim men medallists more than doubled in the same period.
The total number increased from 44 to 97 medallists. Brilliant!
Yours,
