While we celebrate some of the milestones of this year’s Olypmics, such as female athletes representing every team, this one hasn’t received much recognition from what I’ve seen.

Ibtihaj Muhammad is an American sabre fencer and a member of the United States fencing team. She’s the first Muslim woman to compete for the United States in an international competition, and is known for sporting Islamic attire and altering her uniforms to cater to her religious requirements.
