The Iranian only female Olympic medalist has left her country to Netherlands, and it seems like she has a lot to say about that, because leaving your country to compete another flag can be a bit a hard decision, especially if the athlete won a medal in the Olympic games. 




We do not care about politics and we think that every athlete has the right to decide what is better for them, and of course the athlete would be responsible for their decisions. 
This phenomenon is not only happening in Iran but in many countries no matter how powerful they are. 
We have seen Aaron Cook moving from GBR to Moldova and many others..
