The peanut gallery will undoubtedly have much more to say after Biles stepped down from participating in the individual all-around gymnastics finals at the Tokyo Olympics but most are siding with the Texas native’s decision to prioritize her mental health.Still The GOAT: Simone Biles Will Not Participate In Individual All-Around Gymnastics Final #SimoneBiles — The Urban Daily
Comment: I am actually happy for Ms. Biles! I think what she did was brave and also showed the world that it’s okay to prioritize yourself! Yes. Prioritizing yourself does not mean you are selfish. Ms. Biles has consistently shown over the last 8 years that she is a giving person; having given the world her talents and also the wisdom of a young athlete that ultimately influenced several generations of gymnasts and athletes alike. And being a women of color, it’s time that people realize that we are people. We can not and will not be everything for everyone for the sake of not offending or not taking on the brunt of everyone’s problems anymore.
