Pakistani Kulsoom Abdullah First Weight Lifter Who Wears Hijab

Kulsoom Abdullah, Pakistani-American, has been weightlifting at both national and international level since 2010, but what is most interesting about her is that the lady is always sighted with hijab even though lifting enormous weights.

She is a computer engineer by profession, with a PhD from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Kulsoom Abdullah has participated in the ‘US National Competition’ in 2011, while in the same year she represented Pakistan (at the international level) at the ‘2011 World Weightlifting Championships’.
