Last week saw Bahrain sprinter Ruqaya Al Ghasara win the gold medal in the 200-metres at the Asian Games in Doha, Qatar wearing a specially constructed hijab and a full-length running suit that exposed only her hands and face. What’s very interesting is that Al Ghasara’s outfit is clearly branded by her sponsor Nike- you can’t miss the red swoosh placed across the side of her head.

Having already created jilbabs for Kenyan women to play volleyball earlier this year, Nike seem to be leading the way for branded religion.
