Bahrain does not require its athletes to compete in traditional Muslim garb, but Roqaya Al-Gassra chooses to sprint in a full hijab.

Gassra has been grabbing attention in Beijing for her speed and her track suit. She won her heat in the 200 meter dash Tuesday and she says she wears the full hijab as a personal choice.

“Wearing the hijab shows that there are no obstacles,” she said at Doha. “I’ve set my best times wearing the hijab.”
