Qatar's first female Olympians on target to make history
Doha, Qatar (CNN) -- Bahiya Al-Hamad is a 19-year-old college student and air-rifle shooter who is about to make history for her country.
When she travels to London to take part in the Olympic Games this summer, she will be part of the first group of Qatari women ever to compete at the Olympics.
Qatar is one of only three countries -- the others are Saudi Arabia and Brunei -- which have never sent female athletes to an Olympics Games. This year, three women will represent Qatar at London 2012. The others are swimmer Nada Arkaji and sprinter Noor al-Malki.
