Female Saudi judo fighter cleared to compete wearing form of headscarf

A female judo fighter from Saudi Arabia will be allowed to compete in the Olympics wearing a form of headscarf after a compromise was reached that respects the “cultural sensitivity” of the Muslim kingdom.

Judo officials had previously said they would not let Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani compete in a headscarf because it was against the principles of the sport and raised safety concerns.

But an agreement was reached after several days of IOC-brokered talks between the International Judo Federation and the Saudi Olympic Committee that clears the way for her to compete Friday in the heavyweight division.

Saudi Arabia's judoka strikes blow for women's rights at Olympics

Wojdan Shaherkani has become the first Saudi woman to compete at the Games in London


A 16-year-old girl who has never before competed in an international competition has struck a blow for gender equality, becoming the first woman ever to compete for Saudi Arabia at the Olympic Games.

The Saudi judo player Wojdan Shaherkani has been at the centre of an international storm over the inclusion of female athletes from the kingdom in the Games, with the country's ruling authorities seeking to block any women from competing.
