Leading on all fronts, Princess Reema Bendar Al-Saud is once again an example for young Arab women to follow. This outspoken trailblazer recently attended the International Olympic Committee (IOC) meetings in Lausanne, where she advocated for the support of women in sport.
The Saudi Princess heads the Women In Sports Commission in the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee alongside Prince Fahd bin Jalawi bin Abdul Aziz bin Musaid who leads the Public Affairs and Social Development Through Sports Commission, and Prince Abdul Aziz bin Turki Al-Faisal on the Marketing Committee.

“We work closely with all members of the Olympic family through the IOC Women in Sports Committee to support the participation of women at all levels of sports,” Princess Reema said after the meeting, according to Arab News.
“We discussed all the advances that have been achieved in this area, as well as some of the key challenges that are facing women currently,” she added. Princess Reema is also thrilled that Saudi Arabia encourages sports as a “way of life” in all segments of society.
P.S: if you ask us, she’s all the motivation we need to get moving.
