    Just throwing this out there, because I don't really follow gymnastics. I read an analysis by other retired gymnasts that said it was obvious that she had "lost herself in the air". This is apparently a condition that is extremely dangerous and one cannot really "play through". It was compared to vertigo for fighter pilots. Might be overcome with practice, but to continue would be extraordinary reckless and risk serious injury or death. The article referenced a young gymnast in a Tokyo qualifier match who was paralyzed and died a quadriplegic. Don't know if any of that is true, just another opinion to consider. She did stay with her teammates the rest of the competition, cheering them on and encouraging.
    I read some posts on that. I thought - seems to make sense with what happened to her vaults and if so, I would only blame the US Team for f'n up the messaging of it, BUT I checked with a close friend who's daughter is on an Olympian gymnast track for '24 or '28 and he said the 'twisties' is bullshit. So, who knows.

    Also I know some of you talked about pulling herself out for low performance. But that actually forced the other 3 team members to operate without a backup. Team compeition is 4 people compete, take top 3 scores. Now the US is forced to have 3 people compete and take all scores. No backup. If she'd had withdawn earlier, it an alternate could have been named--but by going mid-competition, hoses her teamates.

    And in unrelated news, the #2 US gymnast won the gold (the one who's father was paralyzed and too poor to buy a balance beam so he built one). Put her on TV. I don't wanna see Goat Meat no more.

    She has now withdrawn from the individual events. LOL wow.

    Should change her name to Simone Bails.

    I get that shit happens and Plan A went out of the window. I get that some days everything just works and on others, not so much, for no real reason at all. But when you literally have a picture of a fucking goat on your onezie and refer to yourself as the 'head star' (p.s., Im pretty sure thats an award in porn) you can't show up to a fucking Olympics, where you took someone elses spot who would have literally murdered someones children to get into, and then 'not feel like it' after you realize your perfect streak of whatever is about to go to shit.

    You managed to make commercials and make money and shit before the Olympics. Get there and...oh, I dont feel like it today. Yeah fuck all that. And whatever you do, at anytime now or in the future, stay the fuck off of any team I'm on so I don't have to plan ahead for you bitching out when we're on the 3 yard line.

    She has X amount of medals and awards and has won some shit. I don't know exactly what, I'm sure someone does. All I'm ever going to remember her as, after all of that, is the chick that went to the Olympics and then just completely gave up. That is now the sum of everything you've done.

    One of the first things I thought about after she bailed. Somewhere in the US is a heartbroken, and likely now very pissed, young lady that was the next in line for the alternate list and perhaps her only chance to at least be able to go to the Olympics. I'd bet Biles was already thinking about the possibility of bailing out before even heading to Tokyo. She should have bailed then.

    You won't see the media bring that shit up! They're too busy heralding her courage for speaking out on mental health!

    Yeah, I can't wait for the flow of kids now who don't do something and it was because of 'mental health'.

    If your mental health is that bad, you need to be at the hospital. Otherwise, its called being psy'd out and has existed since the beginning of time. Part of it was that she didn't 'need' any of this anymore and that happens to a lot of people with success; the drive is just gone because, why should I keep doing this? The other part is she is so fucking full of herself, in a 'sport' that in the grand scheme of things, is someone jumping on/around a fucking 4x4 on the ground, and for the first time in a long time had the realization that how 'great' she is supposed to be may no longer line up with what she is about to do.

    It was reported that she had God awful warm-ups and pre lims. This isn't 'mental health' as in shes about to go crazy and become the Joker. This is someone that talked a bunch of big shit and put a rhinestone picture of a fucking goat on all of her outfits, and then when it was time to put up, realized that bitching out might be the better option.

    That is literally what this is.

    And for all of those 'but she has been so great and has done so many great things' bleeding heart faggots; yeah she did. And then she quit for no actual reason, mid Olympics, in-front of her team and everyone. I mean, Bill Cosby did a lot of great stuff during his career too right, but what does everyone remember him for now?

    Maybe she was so busy making woke subway commercials she had no time to practice and realized too late she could not cut it anymore.

    Ooooo you said my trigger word "Mental Health"

    As someone who has suffered from mental health issues (there a bunch of alphabet lists being triggered right now) for a very long time, I never got to decide "nah, not feelin it today brah--gotta get my headspace right"

    Bills had to be paid.
    Jobs had to be done. Jobs where failure to pay attention could cause death or dismemberment
    Kids had to be raised
    Meals had to be cooked.

    I have fought this shit for 30+ years and now the ahem person ahem gets applauded for just walking away? I didn't even get a damn cookie or "Gee, thanks"

    I'm gonna go stew in my (medicated) hate for a while.

    Not the heart of a champion.

    A champion can have a bad day, an injury, whatever but then gathers themselves up, grits their teeth and is determined to go out and perform at the highest level. We have seen it in gymnastics and a lot of other sports as well.

    You better lose yourself in the music
    The moment, you own it, you better never let it go (go)
    You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
    This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
    You better lose yourself in the music

    Not the heart of a champion.
    Turns out not about heart, its about mind. Simone Biles states she has ADHD and had been on a prescription stimulant for over 4 years (she had a medical exemption in Olympic Rio 2016). That drug is illegal in Japan, so she has not been able to take it. Apparently, the Russians found this out through the internet, making sure this came forward as it could tarnish her "GOAT" status, so she had to come out with this. But this is why she felt she couldn't compete. Her brain chemistry is not her usual self, which is why she got disoriented in the air.

    Am I the only one that remembers this? If my memory is correct, this was the last vault by the last competitor on the team. Stuck the landing on one leg, after running down the runway on a leg she could barely walk on. That's the heart of a lion.


    And i just remembered. This vault put the USA team over the top for gold. Performance when it matters most...

    Biles has the heart of a... goat.

    One thing I find interesting about these sports, outside right around the time the Olympic comes on the TV, not one shit is given by 99% of anyone about most all the sports that make up the olympics, I mean 7mo ago how many posts about gymnastics were on the hide?

    Up until this last week and all this noise about biles, I had no clue who she was, a year from now I’ll probably forget her name, as will most everyone.

    Sometimes, you just plain CHOKE.
    Life goes on. Enough with the excuses. Just say “I choked, and lost my confidence”.
    The backup gal showed up and did well. Her dad is surely proud of her, and happy she got the opportunity. If Biles had just kept messing up, the team would be in worse shape. She did the right thing, but putting out Dimwit-type excuses will follow her forever.
    If you watch her vault, her eyes lose focus in mid-air. She looked like my Doberman did when she bit my ass after I rolled over on her paw. Wild eyes.
    I felt like she did the last steel challenge match I choked on. No biggie. “I knew better than to try Berry’s Bullets” said my sad self, seeing my Master Class butt shoot a b score. Garrrr👺

    Is this specifically reference to adderall?

    There is an exception process for one month. She didn't do it. Sounds like a convenient excuse.

    She's injured -> no, she's got mental health issues -> no, she's got the twisties -> no, she couldn't take her medicine because of the Japanese.

    Long list of excuses.

    She was never reportedly injured, and the rest stems from the explanation given above. The (implied) problem for Simon Biles is adderal is basically a type of methamphetamine, which is perfromance enhancing drug. Without the performance "enhancment", she's not "performing" to gold medal standard.

    Because you could easily frame this in ways that would make the powers that be very uncomfortable, nobody is allowed to publically discuss it. Consider the tons of advertiser and marketing dollars wrapped up in this girl. Those people also underwite NBC and the other monopolies' media/PR stragegies.

    Or. something like that...👾

    If she is indeed on this for her treatment and knew that she couldn't take it for the Olympics, why is she there? Really, did she not know what effect of not taking her medicine would have on her? Has she not practiced while not using it? Why has she not yet withdrawn from the individuals, if that is the case?

    Sounds like just another excuse. . . stay tuned there will probably be another.

    Plus the fact that it would be illustrating how many parents in the US basically were getting their kids hooked on drugs because they sucked at parenting.

    I knew a few kids growing up who’s parents fed them those pills, all of those parents really did the bare min, as in if “free” government schools didn’t exist where they could dump the kids off, they likely would have never learned how to read and would have just roamed the streets.

    Judged competitions are not sports and should not be in the olympics. Skateboarding can fuck right off, and co can gynastics. At least golf and the shooting sports (neither of which can claim the title of athletic 'athletes') have objective scores.
    If you have decisions solely based from judges? There’s some real Tom-fuckery going on. Guaranteed.

    I do not support her decision to come to the Olympics and then just puss out, as others have already said - putting teammates in a bad position and taking a spot someone else would have cherished. The is not the heart of a champion. She had nothing else to prove and easily could have talked away after 2016 or last year or whatever.

    Still, I didn't want to pile on with all the references of the GOAT on her leotard and referring to herself as "Head Star". I mean, that seems so unlike the humble gracious Simone Biles that's been shoved in front of us for 5 years.

    So I did a quick Duck search - and I mean really quick like less than 30 seconds worth of research. Yep, she considered herself to be the "Head Star". But would anyone really put a goat head on their leotard?

    Yep, as it turns out she really did - and not just that but went to to say when you're the greatest you shouldn't be ashamed to admit it.

    Goat Leotard - "I'm the Greatest Gymnast Of All Time!"

    Pretty strong talk there. When you talk big you better be able to back it up.

    Thats who I was referring to earlier. Couldn't remember her name. I think I put she had a broken arm, not messed up leg, but thats who I was thinking of as I remember watching it live and being like What. The. Fuck.

    Biles on the other hand? She's a quitter with an excuse.

    Not that far out there. It is well known that most female gymnasts are “over the hill” in the sport by the time they graduate high school. 20 somethings are rare. Lots of teens in swimming and diving too. The Olympic coverage has made it a point of emphasis to highlight the athleticism on display at the games, and not to sexualize the athletes. The commentators actually said there are special instructions not to focus on body parts in the way that they have in past games. Ogling teenagers may not be the only reason to tune in to the olympics, but it is clear that for some/many it is a reason. Enough that someone is attempting to address it.

    With the way guys are going on you'd think the olympics used to give winners children to have sex with as prizes. Oh wait...

    Of course those were the old days so we'll chalk it up to cultural differences as Biden would say.

    The Olympic's would be interesting and fun to watch when (and I've been saying this for decades now...) :

    They have 90 meter Freestyle
    -on the slopes

    They have 10 meter LALO
