Ramadan in Olympics

Can you imagine an elite athlete competing at the same time fasting during the world's greatest sports event? Believe it or not some opted to fast but most did not take the chance. There are many ways to look at the angle of a fasting athlete, many things are to be considered if one should fast or just be fast.

Among other things, a Muslim woman's religious duty is covering the hair and most of its flesh. And there goes the modesty issues.

In this graphic we tackle the obstacles that a Muslim athlete has to overcome just to reach for the gold.
