Simone Biles is zichzelf niet op de Olympische Spelen. De topturnster van TeamUSA kampt met mentale problemen en trok zich daardoor terug uit de individuele- en teamfinale. Biles kreeg veel respect vanwege haar keuze.
A moment of undeniable strength from @simone_biles. We always focus on the physical aspect of health but the mental aspect is just as important. When you take care of both, you will flourish in life! ❤️🤍💙#SimoneBiles GOAT 🐐— Paul Pogba (@paulpogba) July 28, 2021
I’ve been thinking of #SimoneBiles all day. So very sorry she wasn’t feeling her best.— Billie Jean King (@BillieJeanKing) July 27, 2021
She showed true leadership in taking herself out of competition in order for her team to have a chance to medal. Sending her and the team love & support.
Congratulations to #TeamUSA! 🥈
I stand with Simone Biles...a black woman having the agency to no longer participate in a system that jeopardizes her mental and/or physical health is a revolutionary act!! #SimoneBiles #notallheroswearcapes— Winston Duke (@Winston_Duke) July 28, 2021
