Mona Sulaiman competed in the sprints at the 1960 and 1964 Olympics. Her greatest meet was the 1962 Asian Games, where she won the sprint triple (100, 200, 4x100), and also added a bronze medal in the shot put. Sulaiman retired in 1966 after she refused to take a gender test before the 1966 Asian Games. She began work in the private sector, but in the 1990s the Philippine Sports Commission hired her to serve as a consultant to the Filipino national athletics team. Sulaiman was inducted into the PSC Hall of Fame in January 2016.
