By FRANCIS OGBONNA
Finally, Muslim ladies, who are enthusiastic about athletics or those who just like to keep fit and need to do so in public, now have a “Hijab Pro” collections they can chose from courtesy of Sportswear giant, Nike.
The global brand, in a bid to inspire women and girls who would like to stick to their principles of modesty as they engage in sports, launched the range Friday.

The new Nike Pro Hijab has been in development for over a year and is made out of light, stretchy fabric in order to tackle the performance problems faced when wearing a traditional hijab during sports such as lack of breathability and the chance of it shifting during movement.
