Iranian creates Olympic history

Kimia Zenoorin

Kimia Alizadeh Zenoorin became the first Iranian woman to win an Olympic medal after claiming taekwondo bronze in the -57kg category Friday.

The 18-year-old fell to the floor and kissed the mat after beating Sweden’s Nikita Glasnovic 5-1.

“I am so happy for Iranian girls because it is the first medal and I hope at the next Olympics we will get a gold,” she said.

Team GB’s Jade Jones won gold in the event, beating Spain’s Eva Calvo Gomez.

Iran’s 65 Olympic medals have come in just four sports – wrestling, weightlifting, taekwondo and athletics – with Zenoorin’s bronze the nation’s fifth medal in Rio.
