Meet Ibtihaj Muhammad, the First Muslim Woman to Represent Team USA in a Hijab

Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad makes training and working out in a hijab look so effortless, and this summer at the Rio Olympics, she'll be the first muslim woman to represent Team USA while wearing a hijab.

In true Ellen fashion (pun intended), the comedian had a special uniform created for Ibtihaj, aimed at "distracting opponents." Watch the New Jersey native and headline-making Olympian show off her skills against an Ellen staffer.
