"Let me start with a greeting, a farewell or condolences," the 21-year-old wrote in an Instagram post and explained why she had overflowed. "I am one of the millions of oppressed women in Iran who have been playing with for years."

Alizadeh became the first Iranian woman to win an Olympic medal after winning bronze in the 57kg Taekwondo category at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.

Alizadeh, affectionately known as the "tsunami" in Iran, has announced that she will leave her country of birth while the regime in Tehran is heavily criticized.

"They took me wherever they wanted. I carried whatever they said. I repeated every sentence they ordered. Whenever they thought it was right, they took advantage of me," she wrote, adding, that the credit for their success always went to those responsible.

"I wasn't important to them. Neither of us was important to them, we were tools," added Alizadeh, explaining while the regime was celebrating her medals, criticizing the sport she had chosen: "A woman's virtue is not too Extend your legs! "

Reports of her raid first appeared on Thursday. Some Iranians suggested that she had traveled to the Netherlands. At their post it was unclear which country Alizadeh had gone to.

On Friday, the head of the Iranian Taekwondo Federation, Seyed Mohammad Pouladgar, said Alizadeh had assured both her father and her trainer that she was away on vacation, a trip for which he claimed she was paid by the Iranian government Service. He dismissed the reports of Alizadeh's overflow as politically motivated rumors that were amplified by the foreign media.

Alizadeh confirmed the rumors on Saturday, saying that she "did not want to sit at the table of hypocrisy, lies, injustice and flattery" and was not complicit in the regime's "corruption and lies".

"My troubled spirit doesn't match your dirty economic relationships and narrow political interests. I want nothing more than taekwondo, security and a happy and healthy life. You are not invited to go to Europe."

She said the decision was harder than winning Olympic gold. "I will remain a daughter of Iran wherever I am," she said.

Their overflow occurred due to protests against the government in cities across Iran and international pressure after Iran admitted to accidentally shooting down a Ukrainian airliner, killing all 176 people on board.

Canada, Sweden and other countries whose citizens have died on the plane have increased demands on Tehran to conduct a full and transparent investigation against the backdrop of new U.S. sanctions against Iran and a dangerous escalation with Washington.

"Iran will continue to lose more strong women if it doesn't learn to empower and support them," said State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus about Alizadeh's overflow.
