Team GB Rower Moe Sbihi Talks Faith and Olympics The month of Ramadan falls over this year's Olympic games in London. Ramadan is a holy month in the Muslim calendar when Muslims must abstain from eating and drinking, along with other activities, during daylight hours. This leaves Muslim athletes with a tough choice, to fast or not to fast?
 
Moe Sbihi is one Team GB's Rowing hopefuls and talks exclusively to us about why he has decided to postpone his fast over the games and tells us that winning a gold medal may well be on the cards!
