OLYMPICS DAY 7
"THE YEAR OF THE WOMEN"Tahmina Kohistani, the only female athlete to represent Afghanistan competes in the Women’s 100m Sprint. Finishing 31st out of 32 athletes.

"Such a short distance, she thought. Just 100 more meters and it would all go away. The abuse: the men watching her train in Kabul, heckling her to go home, “to get behind the man;” the taxi driver who kicked her out of his cab when he found out she was training for the Olympics."
“It is the journey. Being here is more important for me than a gold medal.”
Followers, if you read one thing today and only one thing today, READ Tahmina’s story. Had me in tears. It is one of inspiration, strength, power, change and courage.
