Hijab victory for Saudi Olympic judoka


The debate over whether Saudi Arabia's female Judoka should be allowed to wear a hijab during competition has been resolved.

The International Olympic Committee has said Wojdan Shaherkani will now be allowed to wear a headscarf that does not compromise her safety.

It is the first time Saudi Arabia has allowed female athletes to compete at an Olympic Games.
