If you walk out and quit on your team, you can't be the GOAT
Everything she has done to this point, will forever be overshadowed by this.

Her legacy is Olympic Quitter.

Maybe she was wanting to save her energy for an encore on Dancing with the Stars.

Biles is outstanding and seems to be a genuine person; she is not the GOAT. Comaneci and Korbut made the sport of women's gymnastics.

Simone Biles, relating to gymnasts worldwide here: "They saw it a little bit in practice. Having a little bit of the twisties."

The twisties. The absolute worst.


Twitter Link trying to explain "the twisties"

It's the Yips. She is in her head.

Yep, I now understand why she took herself out of the team event. She was toast and she knew it. No way she would had perform good enough for the team to even medal. She could not even complete a full routine on the vault.

Exactly. And it doesn’t look like it started today. My first thought was that she was being selfish, but after watching the broadcast I think she pulled out because she knew she didn’t have it and she was hurting her team.

Yep, she was beyond done…she just did not have it and she knew it…she was trying to help the team, not hurt it.

I'll be curious to see how she does in the individual events.

I am pretty sure she would want to have competed had she felt she should/could. I will give her the benefit of the doubt on this.

“I don’t trust myself.”

Her own words. Not trusting herself on gymnastics routines doesn’t seem safe.

She pulled out for that and didn’t want to ruin her teammates chances because she was all over the place.

But yea. She’s a bad bad little selfish girl turning the reigns over to the teammates she trusts.

What’s worse “I’m total arse right now and can’t land anything or do anything right but you all suck so much I’ll stay in” or “I don’t trust myself, but I do trust you to bring us home a medal. Go do it.”

I don’t what the bitter fat fricks think. They’ve been crying about it for hours now.

No one would be this upset if she had just gone to the coach the day before and told him "I don't have it. I'm not there mentally. I'm going to keep the team from medaling if u compete."

That Way, the others could be prepared for it and the team could have been maneuvered to try to score as much as possible with all 4 gymnasts.

By quitting after 1 event, she fricked everyone and personally disadvantaged the team by only having 3 gymnasts going forward.

She was probably nervous to approach the coach that way, but the coach should have also been keen enough to sense that she had the Yips and was in the shutter mentally, and then he could have talked it out with her the day between qualifying and the medal round.

It's a huge disaster on all fronts.
