Ramadan a challenge for Muslims at London 2012


It so happens that these Olympic Games coincide with the Muslim month of Ramadan, which means that all able-bodied Muslims are expected to fast from sunrise to sunset, unless they have a valid reason no to, for example those that are traveling, sick or facing health risks. Apparently the biggest problem will not be fasting but sleep-deprivation from having to eat at 4 o’clock in the morning. Some choose not to, which of course is a tough, personal decision.
