Three Saudi Female Athletes Review their Experiences
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 16 - 05 - 2020

The Olympic Committee's YouTube channel presented a session with participation of female athletes Kariman Abuljadayel, Reem Al-Aboud and AlHasnaa Al-Hammad to talk about their distinguished sports experiences.
The beginnings and difficulties were discussed during the session, as Kariman Abuljadayel said that her sporting career began by joining the 100m race team in the university, as it was surprising to everyone that she was the first Saudi woman to join this team where then women's sport was at its beginning in the Kingdom, which increased the challenges before she went on to participate in Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics.
Talking about the story of her transformation into rowing sport after she participated in the world championship and the Olympic Games as a sprinter at the 100m speed race, Abuljadayel confirmed that she discovered that there are sports that the athlete loves, and other sports that they can be distinguished at, which led her to switch to rowing sport after undergoing several tests and consulting some experts, as the sport was appropriate for her technical and physical capabilities, which was achieved on the ground where she achieved first place and the gold medal in the first Gulf rowing championship.
Reem Al-Aboud said that her passion for motor racing started from a young age, due to the great love her father holds for cars, which made her relate to this world and takes care of all its details, adding that the beginning was very difficult, confirming that despite her great interest in motor racing, she was not aware at the beginning that drivers need high fitness and quick wit.
She pointed out that her story with Formula E started in the women's auditions round when the Kingdom organized the race for the first time, where she underwent several tests and went through several stages before she registered her name as the first Saudi contestant to participate in Formula E races.
As for AlHasnaa Al-Hammad, she indicated that her entry into the world of sports after the spread of women's sports reduced the difficulties she faced, but the tension remains during first participation and trying to study and play the sport were the most important difficulties she faced.
She explained that her achievement of the Asian gold medal as the first Saudi fencer to do that made her more eager to commit to training as she wishes to continue her career and compete in Olympic Games.
