Muhammad, an African American women’s saber fencer, first made history several years ago when she became the first Muslim woman to compete for the U.S. in fencing. Now that she has qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Muhammad is making history once more.
“I want to compete in the Olympics for the United States to prove that nothing should hinder anyone from reaching their goals — not race, religion or gender”

“Sky Brown is an unexpectedly raw skater from Miyazaki, Japan who just became the youngest female to skate in the Vans US Open Pro Series. While not even having reached double digit numbers in terms of age, she shreds harder and larger than plenty of people twice, and even three times her age.
Sky broke out after a clip of her attacking a miniramp near her home in Japan was posted on Facebook. Ben Mondy of GrindTV points out that Sky is following in the footsteps of other incredibly young, talented skater girls such as 6-year-old Quincy Symonds, a.k.a. the “Flying Squirrel,” and Sabre Norris, the 9-year-old whose video of her completing a 540 has had over a million views globally.”
