Biles spoke about her own mental health, that she didn't like not having an audience, but what she did was pile extra work and stress on her teammates who had to do extra competitions to fill Bile's slots - while Bile decides if she's going to uniform up for individual glory errr, comps.

The Media Jackals need to leave her the blank alone. It’s between her and the teammates, she doesn’t owe anyone else a damn thing. Plenty of other stories out there other than this.

‘I just knew I had to do my gymnastics, nothing more, nothing less.’

A true champion and team mate. For the USA to get silver under such circumstances was a great achievement.

They accept the notice they are in the olympics quite a bit of time prior I believe; I really feel she let her team mates down big time;

I don’t think our athletes are up to the psychological torture that is the Olympics. The whole thing is a mental health hazard and should be avoided by Americans.

Really proud of her team mates, even with all the pressure they did quite well. Real troopers.

The teammates are the real story - how they were under the same competition stress, but were able to up their game, work harder, and, demonstrating the three were a gold medal team, saved the silver.

There is something going on, I’m concerned we now have two superb athletes who are claiming mental issues. Who is pushing them so hard they break? What is wrong with their support structure? Has this happened before and we just didn’t hear of it?

Her teammates won’t get all the adulation that she did. What another crock of crap.

What was that book by EdSec William Bennett in the ‘90s?

“Slouching Towards Gomorrah”

He was prescient.

Fine. So move onto better stories and just ignore her.
