Saudi Arabia will send its first female athlete to an Olympic Games, thus avoiding a threatened ban on its participation at London 2012. Anita DeFrantz, who heads the IOC's Women and Sports Commission, said any country that didn't allow female athletes to compete would be barred.

This is the only link I found but the news seems legit, but it doesn't surprise me coming from Wahhabis.
It's funny they would be allowed in the Olympics with only "one" woman.

I'm wondering what discipline she is in and also wondering what she will be wearing
