The star of the US national team retires after a disappointing exercise in vaulting. He had confessed to “feeling the weight of the world on him”
Psychodrama Simone Biles: the American, one of the most anticipated of the entire Olympics, withdraws from the team final of the arts after only one rotation, the vaulting one, where – unrecognizable – lands very badly and deserves a 13,766 which certainly is not like her . The United States, at that point, switches to asymmetrical parallels. But Simone is not there. She has put on her suit again and, from the edge of the platform, encourages her companions.
What happened to her? Difficult to understand. He does not limp, does not appear to have suffered an injury. Although a note from the US team informs that “Simone Biles has given up the team competition due to a medical problem. His condition will be monitored in the coming days”.
A voice takes on more and more body. It would be “a mental problem”. To report it would be a coach of the team. Simone on Monday, on the eve and after the qualification, had written on Instagram: “Sometimes I feel all the weight of the world on my shoulders”. Other than a chase to the five gold medals and the absolute record of Olympic successes: Tokyo 2020, for Miss Biles, risks ending here.
