Apple Adds Female Athlete Emojis Just in Time for the Olympics

Apple just released over 100 redesigned emoji characters with more gender options, including athletes.

These emojis come in time for the summer Olympics happening this month where it’s said that an estimated 45 percent of competitors will be women. This is also Apple’s continuing effort to add equal representation in gender and race to their emojis.

Additionally, the redesign also includes gender options in professions, more family options (a single mom, for example), and a rainbow LGBT flag.

So if you want to root for your fave athletes while live-tweeting the Olympics, you’ll have enough emojis to cover you.
