BREAKING: She’s Quitting – Nation Stunned

On July 27, the greatest gymnast in history, Simone Biles, withdrew from the final all-around competition at the Olympics.

The announcement came about a day after Biles shocked everyone initially by withdrawing from the team final. (America would nab silver even without her.)

“I have to focus on my mental health,” Biles said. “I didn’t want to go out and do something stupid and get hurt… At the end of the day we don’t want to be carried out of there on a stretcher.”

I’m not 100% sure how mental health could cause such an immediate need for a stretcher, but maybe Biles is just implying she could get seriously injured if ANYTHING is taking her focus off a sport filled with very risky flips, bends, and landings.

Biles eventually further clarified that being labelled the “head star” of the Olympics was taking quite a toll on her emotionally and negatively impacting her athletic ability.

Biles said she would assess her ability to compete on a “day-by-day” basis, but added that “Physically, I feel good, I’m in shape.”
