Track and Field, 800m — Saudi Arabia

Accomplishments: Finding success despite growing up in a community notoriously hostile to talented, ambitious young women in Escondido, CA

Running Style: Must be accompanied in 800-meter by male chaperone, who hopefully can run fast

Outfit: Actually allowed to wear whatever she wants, as long as the entire track is surrounded by a tarp

Reasons For Success: Thanks to dual Saudi and American nationality, has never faced career-threatening disadvantage of actually living or training in Saudi Arabia

Long-Term Goal: Hoping to inspire other Los Angeles–based, Saudi-American girls to one day compete in track and field at the Olympics
