Future Olympians: Introducing the Young Muslim Athletes Beyond

We’re all fully riled up about #Rio2016 – splashing, jumping and back-flipping along! You’ll have seen some of our favourite stories introducing the characters who’ve shaped this summer’s biggest sporting event.

Now Ummahsonic will be taking you a little further, allowing you to dive a little deeper, with Future Olympians, a mini-series exploring the extraordinary athletes of the future.

From weightlifters to runners, we went to find out about the next generation of British Muslim athletes. We learnt about their Olympian hopes, heroes and aspirations.

These young champions, British sportsmen and women, explain how their faith trains them not only in patience, but perseverance, helping them to conquer even the toughest of challenges.

Check out the first interview, where we spoke to Ramla Ali boxing her way to the next Olympics.

Keep your goggles on for the rest!
