Elnaz Rekabi net worth 2022: Iranian climber defends hijab falling off

Iranian rock climber Elnaz Rekabi competed at an event without wearing her mandatory headscarf.

She then released a message on social media for the first time since concerns were raised for her safety.

She said her hijab had "inadvertently" fallen off during the competition in South Korea.

She also apologized for getting everyone worried.

Rekabi's display without a hijab came as protests rang out across Iran against the death of Mahsa Amini.

Amini was detained by the country's morality police over her clothing and died in custody.

An Iraninan news network alleged that Rekabi would be transferred to Tehran's notorious Evin Prison.

Elnaz Rekabi is a popular Iranian sport climber with a net worth of $2 million in 2022.
