This book examines the challenges faced by young Muslim female athletes from Malaysia, Brunei, and Indonesia in competitive sports. After presenting a socio-historical survey of the Malay world before, during, and after colonization, the author focuses on contemporary social dynamics, including the emergence of Muslim women competing on the international level. Through surveys and interviews conducted at the Twenty-Second South East Asian Games in Hanoi, she captures the athletes' experiences and perspectives as they compete, often under rules that conflict with Islamic practice.
