Gymnast Simone Biles is opening up more about why she withdrew from the Olympics. On Friday, Biles shared on her Instagram Story to post footage of her struggling during her morning practice. While the footage has disappeared from her Story, Biles reposted her messages saying, “for anyone saying I quit, I didn’t quit.” “my mind & body are simply not in sync—as you can see here,” Biles explained. “i don’t think you realize how dangerous this is on hard/competition surface. nor do I have to explain why I put health first. physical health is mental health.” Do you think people are being too pushy with Simone Biles? Do you think athletes have the right to not participate in things that don’t feel comfortable doing, even if it’s the Olympics?
