Did you know that 25% of the women in the US are being treated for mental issues? Which means the other 75% are being left untreated!

If she was having a tough time before, wait till the fallout from all this sets in and she realizes what the cost are to what she just did. She's really going to be messed up.

If she does have some serious mental health thing going on, I only wish her the best, but If it was, just a "suck it up buttercup" and she folded, she's going to regret it.

Biles has already won this Country FOUR GOLD medals.

That vault wasn’t a bobble. She literally lost herself in the middle, and was seriously close to injuring herself.

She did quit, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that She has already performed as the BEST on the highest level. Four Gold Medals as a US Olympian.

Figured somebody would try to use this.

He didn't quit in the middle of the NBA finals did he? The pinnacle series of a basketball players career? No he didn't. He nutted up and fulfilled his obligation to his teammates for the season.....


That's why he is a goat...

He quit under contract - due to stress. So you’d be wrong to mention him again. He literally quit on his Championship team due to stress.

Semantics is adding the caveat “middle of the finals”. He was in the pinnacle of his basketball career, and quit due to stress.

He did “nut up” a year and a half later, lol.

Simone already won gold for her team and country.

She was literally in uniform at the competition when she quit, that's not even close to the same as MJ. I don't really care either way, she can do what she wants, but let's not try to make false comparisons. As a former gymnast my wife is a huge fan of hers so we're pretty disappointed but none of us know what's in her head so all we can do is accept it and root for whomever steps up in her place. I would think twice before putting her back in the world stage again though.

...as a fan I'm indifferent on the whole ordeal. I can't get past the stupidity involved in these olympics. Her quitting for justified or unjustified reasons is a yawn & just hope she's ok.


Ya wanna know what grinds my gears as a fan, it was being cheated outta two of the best boxing matches that never finished properly...you got 'no mas' Duran & ear chomp'n tyson who screwed up two of the best nights that shoulda been & never happened.

They have her whole life. Who could have imagined sending a child around the world, to compete on the worlds stage, with the weight of a nation on their back…..could have led to some mental issues.

I still think this is a publicity stunt, though I don’t doubt she’s got some demons.

He finished the season.... his team won a championship. He retired in the offseason to play baseball. People retire in the offseason all the time. I know you are a LaFraud lover but you are wrong here.

Simone quit on this year’s team during the pinnacle event. Jordan did not. It would be like Jordan quitting at the end of game 6. Quit being an enabler.

This. Jordan went to Birmingham rather than getting suspended! It would have been a huge black eye for both the NBA and Jordan and his legacy. Completely brokered. I’m sure it was stressful :-), but he did not walk away due to stress.

No comparison, pathetic argument. If she quit 2 years ago you’re argument would make some sense. She did not, she quit in the middle of the contest, as in halftime of game 3 of the finals. MJ = Goat, guessing you love you some LeBron amiright?

Wrong….yet again.

MJ quit because his father was murdered under very mysterious circumstances. We can speculate whether or not those circumstances had to do with his gambling debts, but you’re still wrong.

Jordan quit for a year to let the gambling stuff blow over.

The two that “killed” Jordan’s father were just intending to steal his Lexus. They now say they didn’t. The special I saw on it made it seem like wrong place wrong time. But Michael and his father both gambled with some shady people.

Lol As if any one of you know what being in the Olympics and the pressure it could bring is like. From the looks of some of you, you feel pressure in your chest just walking around the grocery store. It's easy to coach from the living room. You don't know what she's gone through or where her head is at.

That's like hearing someone in the NFL sucks at football. Have you ever played in the NFL? No? Yeah figured as much.

She definitely doesn’t suck at gymnastics. I know nothing about being in the Olympics but I do know some about being on a team, counted on by teammates, and stress. I have failed in all categories at times but haven’t tapped out, hopefully I won’t but I might and I’ll be real disappointed in me if I do.

I hurt for her and hate that this happened, hope she can pull it together for the event finals.

I usually never respond to these kind of back and forth topics. For the most part, I respect everyone’s opinion and I couldn’t add much that hasn’t already been said.

But your comment struck a cord. There’s zero comparison between a combat vet and Simone and your comment was a cheap shot. Everyone has the right to type as they please but man I’m just shocked that would even be brought up.

Have any of y’all looked into her reason for quitting??? Didn’t think so . The “twistes” caused her to stop. It’s when your brain and your body aren’t in sinc. To help get over it the athletes use the foam pit to check.
How can all you armchair quarterbacks know what’s in her head ? No other sport compares to gymnastics. They truly fly thru the air spinning and land like it’s nothing at all. One mistake could cost them their life. Apparently she had doubts about her routine. So she pulled out and let someone else compete. It’s all about the numbers. I have no doubt that if she was 100% they would have won gold. But at least the team managed silver with her gone.

Not sure if this has been mentiined but supposedly they were going to penalize her for doing things the otgers cannot so. Some way of levelling the playing field. They are saying she pulled out because she would have had to completely redo her routines and such. If she didn't it would have cost her team.

Perhaps she isn't a quitter afterall.

Every Olympian in every event of all time has and had pressure on them so that excuse for her is worthless. She fudged up, was embarrassed after all her gloating, and quit on the team and her country during the middle of competition in front of the whole world. She will have to deal with that guilt.

IMO that guilt and embarrassment would be a million times worse than any poor performance. In the end, when all the dust settles, she will be remembered for this stunt more so than the medals she’s won in the past.

Suni Lee wins gold in the all around. An American remains on top…

Time for this to take over the headlines!

How can all you armchair quarterbacks know what’s in her head ? No other sport compares to gymnastics. They truly fly thru the air spinning and land like it’s nothing at all. One mistake could cost them their life. Apparently she had doubts about her routine. So she pulled out and let someone else compete. It’s all about the numbers. I have no doubt that if she was 100% they would have won gold. But at least the team managed silver with her gone.
On local sports radio yesterday they had a gold medal gymnast yesterday, she said, Biles had the twistes. I developed the hooks and the shanks once. I could tell it was going to happen before I ever hit the shot.

Perhaps she isn't a quitter afterall.

She was not going to be penalized and no rules have changed, its a lie to strike a emotional cord with some. The issue was if she would get even higher difficulty scores or not, but she was good enough to win, but she freaking quit…
