As if that wasn't cool enough, among the female jockeys for the Saudi equestrian team were present two members of royalty: Princess Anoud Bint Abdullah, who with her team had snagged the silver medal and Princess Jawaher Bint Abdulaziz who was awarded the bronze medal for the 100 cm individual competition.

Four of the medals were won in the athletics competitions, with two in the epee and foil team competitions for fencing and two in karate, one for the collective kata competition and one for the individual, all by these women - royalty or not - slaying like the queens they are!

The Riyadh Center Club - who are based in the capital of both the country and since recently, Arab women as a whole - took home a bronze medal in the archery competition.

We don't know about you, but we're all for this girl power!
