Kimia Alizadeh, Iran’s only female Olympic medalist, has reportedly defected, posting a goodbye letter to Iran on Saturday calling out the government's "hypocrisy" as she announced she had permanently left the country. Alizadeh, 21, did not disclose in her Instagram post where she was going, but Iran's ISNA news agency reported she had gone to the Netherlands, according to Agence France-Presse. The Iranian report quoted Alizadeh's coach as saying the athlete was injured and did not show up for trials ahead of the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Alizadeh accused the Iranian government of “lying” and “injustice” toward Iranian athletes, adding all she wants is "Taekwondo, security and a happy and healthy life," according to AFP.
