Kulsoom Abdullah, of Atlanta, competes during the national weightlifting championships on Friday, July 15, 2011, in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Abdullah is the first woman to compete in the championships while wearing clothing that covers her legs, arms and head, in keeping with her Muslim faith, after the International Weightlifting Federation ruled on her behalf that athletes could wear a full-body "unitard" under the customary weightlifting uniform.
