A little late for that. No muslim won any medals. Just look how bad the muslim women did in the Olympics!!! muslims will never win because of their clothing requirements and those will hold them back because of the restricted movements they must endure.

Well its simple. If they dont qualify, others will say its because they were fasting. If they do get a medal, they ll brag how good they are. *shrug*
