Float & Sting Like Tina
Profile of Tina Rahimi, the first Australian hijabi boxer to qualify for the Olympics in her category.
Tina Rahimi made history in 2023 after she qualified for the Paris Olympics for 2024. In high level sports, Muslim women face more obstacles than other athletes, from a lack of policy understanding coming from higher officials to a lack of behavioural protocols appropriate for women of Muslim faith. Tina began her career as a boxer 5 years ago and has broken down gender, religious and socio economic sterotypes within the sport and in the country.
