Olympic track legend encourages Palestinian women to exercise
American track and field great Jackie Joyner-Kersee is visiting the West Bank, encouraging women in the conservative society to be physically active.


The three-time Olympic gold medalist on Thursday led women through drills jumping over low hurdles, doing sit-ups and competing in a good-natured race. Most participants wore long pants and yellow T-shirts with the slogan "Run for Health, Run for Hope." Some wore traditional robes. (AP)
