Aly Raisman shares thoughts on Simone Biles’ struggles

Must read

Aly Raisman knows better than most the pressure Simone Biles is under at the Olympics, and shared her thoughts after Biles withdrew from the women’s team gymnastics final on Tuesday.

Raisman, former American gold medalist gymnast, spoke with “Today” shortly after Biles withdrew from the team final and said he was feeling “sick to his stomach” from Biles’ inability to compete. She said she was concerned about the mental impact the event had on Biles and urged viewers to remember how much pressure she was facing.

“I’m also thinking about the mental impact this has to have on Simone,” Raisman said. “It’s a lot of pressure and I’ve been watching how much pressure has been on her in the months leading up to the games and it’s just devastating. I feel horrible.

“I think Simone is the biggest story heading into the Olympics, so this is really devastating. But I think it’s also very important to think about how much pressure has been on her, and there is a lot that someone can take. She is human and I think sometimes people forget that. And Simone, like everyone else, is doing the best she can. “

After fighting in the vault, Biles withdrew from the rest of the team final, and his fellow Americans eventually won a silver medal. Biles told reporters after the event that she was not mentally ready to continue and she didn’t trust herself to avoid a major injury.
