Officials say the country's Olympic Committee will oversee participation of women athletes who can qualify.Until now, Saudi Arabia was one of three countries that did not allow women to participate in the games.
The other two are Qatar and Brunei and they are also going to allow their female athletes compete in the London games that will begin July 27.
