--Judo federation says Saudi female can't wear headscarf
^ Makes sense, that shit would fall off once you got hip-thrown. Tae-Kwon-Do is understandable as they wear headgear, but when you're getting flipped around and taken down, nobody wants to deal with that nonsense. WHat happens when it falls off? "Sorry, I just gotta pick this up, and readjust it so it fits okay again....."
enough with the sympathy towards religion; just because it's a big deal where you come from (the competitor), doesn't mean it's like that to the rest of the world........the rest of the world has internet access and HBO thank you very much.
