Sasha and Malia Obama steam up the sporty look in tiny shorts and sports bras on hike in LA
Sasha and Malia Obama cemented themselves as true Los Angeles celebrities after they were spotted taking a grueling hike in the Hollywood heat.
The former First Daughters of 44th President Barack Obama relocated to the West Coast earlier this year. The duo was photographed enjoying a scenic uphill walk just days after being spotted dining out at a lavish LA restaurant with their mother, former First Lady Michelle Obama.
The Obama sisters put forth a sporty display during their hike, with Sasha, 20, wearing a tiny pair of black workout shorts that she coupled with a black T-shirt that was tied up into a crop top. Meanwhile, older sister Malia, 23, donned a black Nike sports bra and black leggings. Both completed their looks with black sneakers and several accessories, including colorful beaded necklaces and a rainbow-themed anklet. Sasha flaunted long bright green nails that matched with her green water bottle. Meanwhile, her iPhone was tucked into the waistband of her shorts. Malia sported a more low-key look, wearing a plain scrunchie on her wrist and leaving her braids to hang down her back. Malia was seen carrying a white water bottle and held her phone in her hand with what appeared to be a car key on a small stuffed animal keychain.
The images, obtained by The Daily Mail, showed the sisters chatting throughout their hike. At one point, both young women were seen leaning over to catch their breath as they made their way up a steep hill. The sisters also took in the stunning nature scenes around them, even pausing to pick some bright yellow flowers. However, they were not accompanied by any security or Secret Service. Former Presidents and their spouses are granted Secret Service protection for life, but the same policy only covers their children if they are under the age of 16. Sasha and Malia lost their Secret Service protection shortly after the Obamas left the White House. Nonetheless, they have been spotted with agents whenever they are in the company of their parents.
The sisters' outing came just days after former President Obama revealed that he had tested positive for Covid-19. The 60-year-old father-of-two said he had a "scratchy throat" but was otherwise "feeling fine." He noted that Michelle was still negative for the coronavirus.
I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative.— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) March 13, 2022
It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.
"Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative," Obama tweeted. "It's a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven't already, even as cases go down," he added. Obama did not reveal whether his daughters had been tested, considering they had seen their mother just days before the former POTUS shared the news about his positive test result. However, it is assumed that he did not come into contact with his children, who moved to the West Coast earlier this year and adapted quickly to the Hollywood lifestyle.
