Woman Crush Wednesday: Kamia Yousufi

This Olympics, Afghanistan’s very own Kamia Yousufi competed in women’s 100m track & field. We loved seeing her represent our country on the world stage in Rio, and watch her thrive in track & field in a hijab.

She also was able to win the Afghanistan National Championship although it’s exceedingly rare for Afghan women to have the resources and support to compete at that level. We wanted to take #WCW to honor women the country over who are breaking through stereotypes and showing the world what Afghan women are made of!
