Moe Sbihi is a 23 year old British born Muslim. He is the first practising Muslim rower ever to compete for GB rowing. He won Silver medals at both the 2010 and 2011 Rowing World Championships. Before, Rowing had never crossed his mindâ€¦
â€śIslam taught me that you have to stay determined and you have to believe in what you doâ€¦ I started believing in what I did in Rowing, and that eventually started to pay offâ€ť - Moe Sbihi
