Simone Biles Pulls Out of Olympics Because It Isn't Fun
LINK

Simone Biles: ‘I feel like I’m also not having as much fun - and this Olympic Games I wanted it to be for myself and it felt like I was still doing for other people - and that hurts my heart that doing what I love has been taken away from me.’

It’s just so disrespectful because you know her sponsors are desperate for her to compete in the Olympics, no one would give a crap about her without the Olympics and now she’s pulling this bs.

Of course things aren't going to be easy! It's the best in the world competing! And of course there's going to be stress and pressure, tons of people are watching! If tons of people weren't watching, then your endorsements would be gone.

Weren't we just inundated with people talking about how the gymnastics moves that Biles does is too good for the rest of the field and banned whatever move that was? What happened?

Sponsors are loving this. They don't give a crap about wins. They just want eyeballs. This is bringing eyeballs.

The olympics end in a few days and she couldn't suck it up? The elite anti-American media will defend and excuse her for a few reasons, one being that it feeds into the anti-nationalism narrative they love so much. They will also, right on schedule, ATTACK patriots who call her weak and say she let down her team and country. They are nothing if not predictable.

She is the GOAT, but she's also a goat.

quote:

Superstar Simone Biles said she pulled out of the women's gymnastics team finals Tuesday because she has been fighting internal demons, choosing to take a back seat because she didn't want to ruin her team's chance at a medal.

"I just don't trust myself as much as I used to," Biles said. "After the performance that I did, I didn’t want to go into the other events so I thought I would take a step back."

She added that she had "never felt like this before."

"Once I came out here, I was like, no the mental is not there," she said. "I had to let the girls do it."

Biles said she was hopeful to return for the all-around competition on Thursday after dealing with some things internally and having a mental rest day on Wednesday.

Says it all right here.

With fame comes fortune but also the spotlight. If she didn't want to be famous and just wanted to have fun, she should have chosen one of the obscure sports that only get a little attention every four years.

Can't have it both ways.

Half of y’all are actively rooting against American athletes because they have an opinion that differs from your own.

It doesn't matter how many medals or achievements you might earn, you can still be a loser.

What she is saying is, "There is no team in "I" "

She is the perfect voice for her generation

No......no they aren't

people already now know the story and that the US gets silver. This is going to kill NBC's primetime audience, which is what the sponsors give a shite about.

Having the most gifted gymnast ever quit on the team portion but debate competing in the individual because she wasn’t mentally up to it?

No, one thread was not enough

This melt is great. Can't wait to see her win gold in all the individual competitions later this week.

And there’s you, coddling people while denying reality in every possible instance strictly because they are from the US.

Can you imagine the shite storm of criticism that would have been heaped on Michael Phelps if he had competed and won a bunch of medals in his individual events then bounced for a "mental health day" during the relay events in '08 & '12? He would have been crucified.

I understand that isn't the exact circumstance here, but if she competes in the individual events after pulling this in the team event, she will earn every bit of criticism that comes her way. It's inexcusable. Especially when you're supposed to be the leader of Team USA Gymnastics, not to mention one of the most public faces of the entire Olympic games. Plus all the trash talk she's been hurling around as of late. It's a horrible look any way you slice it.
