According to Mataruna-Dos-Santos et al. (2018), Male athletes dominate the sports world, and they rarely compete against female counterparts. Women’s participation in sports has become a major focus of development in the sporting world. When it comes to both professional and recreational sports, the UAE government goes out of its way to encourage the participation of women. Women in many Emirati homes are being encouraged to seek a career in athletics. While competing in major competitions like the Olympic Games, women athletes are defying prejudices.
