Muslim lifter tries to compete and remain faithful


In this March 13, 2010, photo provided by Kulsoom Abdullah via her website on Thursday, June 9, 2011, Abdullah competes in the 2010 Open Champs at the Branch weightlifting event in Flowery Branch, Ga. Abdullah, a 35-year-old Atlantan, has been barred from entering the U.S. senior nationals in Iowa next month because her Muslim faith requires that she cover her arms, legs and head, which violates international rules governing weightlifting attire.
