With the announcement of her conversion to Islam, the athlete has deleted from social networks all the pictures that were related to her life so far.
“Dear friends, my followers and everyone else! I have made a big decision in life. I am happy and grateful for it and I think I am doing the right thing. The only thing I ask is respect – if you have nothing good. This is a special day for me because I became a Muslim. I believe that a new and beautiful chapter in my life can begin,” the 22-year-old athlete said.
Rebecca Koha asks others not to send her and also not to share in public photos showing Koha’s hair or other parts of the body – arms, legs, neck.
In early May, Koha announced her engagement with Qatari discus thrower Moaz Mohamed Ibrahim.
