If they are not % into it...it is a very dangerous sport... there is not much room for errors when you are so many many feet up...they need to get it right and land properly...never mind the Gold Medal having to spend your life in a wheelchair is not an option.

These athletes are putting a ton of hours trying to make Country proud...pressure is high, body is taking a beating and several millions to judge...

Just my opinion.



If that's the case she should have quit before the trials. The "GOAT" as she likes to be called, doesn't quit on your teammates. The possibility of injury is involved in every sport....maybe they should be forced to wear helmets....the least she could have done is sucked it up for team competition and quit the individual stuff...call Visa....her sponsor and ask them if your Visa card is going to suddenly stop working....

Foe those of you who have never had to deal personally with mental health issues you are very fortunate, and I am thankful for you. Mental health is very serious and can affect people at any time. Pressure is all self induced. It can only exist if you place it on yourself. No matter what others do until you internalize it then it becomes real and it is on you, but coping and dealing with it is not easy. Yes, this is all mental health issues.
It is easy to see a broken arm, leg, etc. seeing a broken brain not so much. We have so stigmatized mental health that it is difficult to deal with.

Having been around Gym clubs (nothing within range of Olympic stuff), and based on personal observations I would say most Gymnasts are likely Type A personality, (tough, strong- minded individuals who are always aiming for perfection).

Other than what I have heard from her, I don't known what the issue is and I don't care to know...it is medical and personal information, which most people would not reveal regardless of status or questions they may be facing...

What I beleive most people can say about her with a level of certainty is that she has represented her Country with a lot of pride and done very well in the past...this alone, I would hope, should give anyone in a similar situation the benefit of the doubt... but again, maybe I have it all wrong...

jbyrd, kids who are addicted to this type of sport are pushing to improve their skills... this drive quickly becomes part of their daily diet (12 to 16 hours a week at the Gym for my kids and they had to do well with homework and rest of it otherwise we were cutting back with training) they work hard to keep it up...so the only thing you can do as parents is support them and pray they don't get hurt...trying to get them out of this sport when they are good at it is like pulling out teeth... and you quickly realize your not gonna be the popular Dad in the neighbourhood or at the Gym Club...

Some of you guys are way to harsh on a girl that has elevated the sport of gymnastic while inspiring many kids across the world...

Just my opinion.

The only ones who should be ashamed are the announcers and media personnel. They cheapened the gold for the other American, Suni Lee, by asking her about Biles every time shes interviewed-basically telling her she is inly where she is because Biles is out. I kinda feel bad for Lee.

The last I heard her timing was off is what they reported today it showed her missing a simple landing by a mile in practice so take that for what itís worth.

I feel the same but I canít get on Biles to bad. She is the best and I read the Olympic judges where not going to give her points for parts of her routines because she does stuff others canít. I would told them to pound sand if I was her

If she said that you would think people would back her up rather then all the mystery stuff I read that they were messing with her scores the other day but nothing said in the MSM.

I heard the Russians have a mind control device that they are experimenting with.

Gotta like the swimming. A couple good American swimmers wearing multiple gold medals and hands on their hearts during the anthem from what ive seen. The wokeness must not survive in the water.

If the Russians would use microwave devices on low ranking, US, foreign dignitaries; it would not surprise me at all that they would use them on US, Olympic athletes, especially in women's gymnastics.
