Women in all Arab teams at the London 2012 Olympics

Women were first allowed participation in the 1900 summer Olympics. That year, just six countries, France, Great Britain, Italy, The United States, Switzerland and Bohemia sent female competitors. Turkish women have participated since 1936, and Israel entered their first women in 1952, followed by Morocco in 1956. The London Olympics 2012 are making history with both Qatar and Saudi Arabia sending women for the first time, thus leading to all Arab teams having female athletes at the games.
