Iran's only Female Medal-winning Olympian has defected
Kimia Alizadeh stood atop the podium at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro with the bronze medal wrapped around her neck. When she defeated Sweden’s Nikita Glasnovic in one of the final matches of the taekwondo tournament, it was an historic moment for her and her entire country. Alizadeh was Iran's first female Olympic medalist. There were tears of joy then over what she had accomplished. But the story has lost some of its sentimentality.
Four years later, and it seems Alizadeh will no longer be representing Iran at the Olympics. According to new reports, she's defected.
Alizadeh now sees herself as less of a proud Iranian athlete and more as “one of the millions of oppressed women in Iran,” she explained on her Instagram page over the weekend. She has reportedly fled to the Netherlands.
Democrats is Iran not the Utopia you think it is.
The Left out does it's mindless stupidity every single day of the year.
They support evil and hate good. They embrace dysfunction while ignoring the natural order to life.
They claim to care for women while supporting an Islamic religion that persecutes them.
They say they care for women's sports while trying to force schools to allow boys with disorders to play in women's sports.
LEFTISTS ARE TRULY FOOLS!
Apart from the 5 traitors in the Cambridge spy ring has anyone ever heard of westerners defecting to communist/socialist countries?
When was the last time you heard of touring entertainers or sportspeople from the free world asking for political asylum in China, Russia, North Korea or Iran?
