High school athlete, 16, is disqualified at her cross-country meet for wearing Nike hijab

An Ohio high school athlete was disqualified from a cross-country meet for wearing a Nike hijab.

Noor Abukaram, who is a student at The Bounty Collegium, was preparing to check in for the Sylvania School District’s race at Owens Community College in Findlay, Ohio, on Saturday when her coach was told there was a problem with her uniform.

The 16-year-old has competed with the Sylvania Northview High School girls cross country team for the past three years and has never had a problem with her Nike hijab, which Nike specifically created for women athletes.
