Twitter Is Convinced Lady Gaga Is Competing at the Olympics in Tokyo
  • Fans think Lady Gaga could be competing in the Tokyo Olympics after photos emerge of taekwondo events.

  • The "Rain On Me" singer actually has a doppelganger named Julyana AlSadeq, who competes in taekwondo on Jordan's Olympic team.

  • Gaga and AlSadeq look so similar it's hard to tell them apart in side-by-side photos.

Turn on the Olympic women’s taekwondo tournament, and you might be shocked to see Lady Gaga out there taking on the competition on the international stage. Or, at least, it looks like she's kicking some serious butt in the Tokyo Summer Games.

Julyana AlSadeq is a taekwondo competitor from Jordan who is a dead-ringer for Gaga —and plenty of people on social media have noticed. “Why is Lady Gaga in the Olympics?” a fan account wrote on Twitter. That is a very good question. Is the singer secretly an Olympic athlete? Lady Gaga does follow an intense fitness routine that resembles an athlete's schedule.

“Lady gaga really said ‘switching them positions for you, cooking in the kitchen and i'm in the bedroom, i'm in the olympics way i'm jumping through hoops’ i’m crying,” another person wrote.

“Lady Gaga is truly the queen of versatility as she recently joined the tokyo olympics 2021,” someone else chimed in.

OK, but who is Julyana AlSadeq? She’s a 26-year-old from Jordan who actually looks less like Gaga in her Olympics profile pic. She’s ranked No. 11 in the women’s under 67 kilograms (about 148 pounds) division and most recently made it to the quarterfinals in the World Championships in 2019.

When she’s not kicking booty on the mat, Julyana likes to go swimming and diving. There’s also this fun fact, per her Olympics bio: She became the first Jordanian female athlete to win gold in taekwondo at the Asian Games when she won her category in 2018.

Julyana is pretty active on Instagram, where she does things like casually demonstrate her flexibility and love of fashion.

Also … she’s tough. Like, check this out:
