Nike releases its first sports hijab for Muslim athletes

SHAFAQNA – Nike Pro Hijab has gone on sale all over the world and is being promoted with the tag line ‘sport is for everyone’.

The sports manufacturing giant announced earlier this year it was working on bringing out a headscarf for female sports stars.

In plain black with the familiar white swoosh, the pull-on design and long back keeps the garment in place during activity.

Nike were inspired to make the Pro Hijab after hearing the plight of Amna Al Haddad back in 2015.

The Olympic hopeful weightlifter from the United Arab Emirates said she had just one hijab in which to compete.

She had to wash it in the sink each night to ensure cleanliness and said she needed a “reliable, breathable, fast-drying hijab for future competitions”.
