Buthainah Albeity

Buthainah is a woman who defies categorisation. She holds a Distinction Masters degree, works as a financial analyst and is an irrepressible sportswoman who is determined to see a female Saudi basketball team play at the Olympics. While Buthainah acknowledges there is a long path to tread before this happens she has never been deterred by adversity, even when forced to beg and borrow time on basketball courts for her team to practise. So surely if anyone can drive women's sport in Saudi Arabia towards this goal, it is Buthainah.
