Tina Rahimi Female Muslim Boxer Makes History, From Tears To Knockouts
Tina Rahimi, a young Muslim woman from Australia,
cried during her first boxing match four years ago.
According to the woman, “I didn’t have faith in myself.”
As I stepped into the ring, I felt entirely unprepared.
I remember dropping my hands after the first round and thinking,
“What exactly am I doing? “Am I underprepared?
After winning my first race, I realized I had a lot of
work ahead of me if I wanted to keep racing.
Rahimi will be the first Muslim female boxer.
She will represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games
in Birmingham in 2022. She has seventeen victories to her name. I was not
aware of this fact when I was first chosen to participate in the games.
I had never thought of it in this way before. I simply want to show the world
how amazing I am and that everything is possible.
Rahimi will wear long-sleeved shirts with tights and a headscarf.
Her parents are Iranian, despite the fact that she was born in Australia.
The athlete claims that her faith is an important part of her pre-match
ritual and that she has met all of the requirements to compete.
“I have unwavering confidence in God and am certain that everything that
is destined to happen will happen,” she says. Unlike most fighters,
Rahimi merely prays before entering the ring.
I analyze the problem at hand after praying for success. Rahimi stated.
Muslim women who excel at running, boxing, or football are emerging as role models.

for becoming England’s first hijabi boxing coach.
Not all hijabi men and women are like boxers Rahimi.
In 2019, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) changed its rules,
attracting a big number of Muslim female boxers.
