Asharq Al-Awsat reports that “a number of Saudis have expressed hope physical education will be incorporate to the educational curriculum for girls across the Kingdom, respecting local traditions and Islam.” Well, I don’t think it will happen anytime soon.

Don’t get me wrong, but as far as I can recall, I always thought sports are harmful to women ;-)
