If it was any other athlete that did this and not a “little girl”, they would be getting hammered. Imagine Tom Brady quitting at halftime of a super bowl because it’s too “stressful”. He would be absolutely destroyed.

The same folks would be bitching had she competed broke her neck and the USA didn’t medal. They would have said, she should have let the alternate compete. I’ve seen that movie plenty on TBH.

Andrew Luck did something similar and was booed by the fans, and it was just a preseason game.

My take was she got the equivalent of the "yips" with that vault. Horrible time for it to happen, but it has happened to plenty of athletes.

It would seem she bowed out to try to give the team a shot.

I guess we will see if she is able to overcome whatever is going on and tackle the individual events.

Pitchers can't kill themselves by throwing a ball at themselves either! This girl could have died by making a mistake. Have you watched her go flying through the air at incredible speeds? There's a big diference when your life could be on the line.

Johnny Miller had the yips so bad he couldn’t putt. Chuck Knoblauch couldn’t throw a baseball from 2nd to 1st. Ian Baker Finch would snap hook the ball so bad he couldn’t even finish a round. Let alone flipping through the air trying not to become a quadriplegic.

Totally agree with @Smart. What do you mean all of us typing on keyboards??

These are the OLYMPICS! We are discussing games that have been going on for years! Athletes have been doing this for decades. Look at the pressure they all have on them...um, Bruce Jenner comes to mind for his accomplishments, Michael Phelps, and so many more, these athletes had the SAME pressure and carried on.

All we are pointing out is the athlete in question bragged about how they were tooo good for everyone and was going to dominate, and then bombed out with excuses. Everyone at the Olympics is in the spot light. Get over it frances.

She straight up said she wasn’t having fun anymore and quit. And then used mental health as the reason.

I have an issue with that as well. She's out, let's move on. Talk about her after the Olympics. Stop showing her on camera, stop talking about her and focus on the other people rather than robbing them of their well earned coverage.

Good comparisons, remember David Duval the was #1 in the world above Tiger at one time, it was shocking how in a snap he lost his game, he had mental stuff too.
