Simone Biles turns to Instagram to share why competing right now is dangerous
Gymnast Simone Biles took to Instagram Thursday night in Houston (Friday afternoon in Japan) to share video of a practice session as well as to answer questions about why she has not been able to compete in the Tokyo Olympics.
Is it worth the risk? Simone Biles and the very serious problem with the ‘twisties’
So many are shocked and asking how Simone Biles, the greatest gymnast of all time, could make it to the world stage, as she has on so many occasions in recent years, and all of a sudden have a mental block that prevents her from taking the gold medals so many of us wanted to see her earn here in Tokyo. Some are questioning if she truly is the G.O.A.T. if she is unable to just “suck it up” and “act” like the greatest. You know, “step-up” like a real champ. What is happening with Simone, in my opinion, has no bearing on her status as the greatest gymnast of all time. Her record verifies that fact-- no need to argue. What she reportedly is dealing with is very real and is not something that can be readily controlled, if at all.
Will we see Simone Biles compete again in Tokyo? That’s the biggest question of the Games
The biggest shock of the Olympic Games remains Simone Biles leaving the team competition. This morning, we learned she would not compete in the individual All-Around events taking place Thursday in Tokyo either.
