‘Can’t hear you over my seven Olympic medals’: Simone Biles Lashes out at critics

Simone Biles’ Mother Made a Disturbing Comment Over Her Daughters Gymnastics Future

 

Simone Biles has expressed defiance to critics after she withdrew from gymnastics events at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

Biles, pulled out a number of events, citing the “twisties”, a phenomenon experienced by some gymnasts where the brain mentally blocks them from performing dangerous stunts.

Biles withdrew from all events, apart from the balance beam, where she won bronze. Inspiration for her decision came from tennis player Naomi Osaka, who withdrew from the French Open and opted not to compete at Wimbledon, she said.

 

However, Biles shared a Instagram post of her many medals, writing in the caption: “The word quitter is not in my vocabulary.
