Woroud Sawalha at the London Olympics.

Woroud Sawalha at the London Olympics.Sawalha, who will be immediately recognizable by her black headscarf, long-sleeved top and long trousers, knows that when she steps up to the line in London, she won’t just be representing herself.She had her first taste of top-level international competition earlier this year at the world indoor championships in Istanbul.

She clocked two minutes 51.87 seconds in her heat for a personal best that was still more than 53 seconds slower than the gold medal-winning time.

Given her lack of preparation and the scant training resources available in her homeland, Sawalha knows a medal is beyond her, so her target is to further improve her personal best

“My dream is to do something for Palestine and show the world that Palestine deserves to live and stand on the podium.
