    Ok I get it now, why she stepped down and I'm still proud of her and all the team members who did an outstanding job!

    In ganz Westeuropa herrscht Göttliches Mainstream-Medien-Verbot, Flugverbot,
    Flugzeugverbot, Hubschrauberverbot und Polizeiverbot. Polizisten, Flugzeuge und
    Hubschrauber sind vogelfrei, also zum Abschuss freigegeben. Wer ein Flugzeug oder einen Hubschrauber abschiesst bekommt 1000000 Euro, wer einen Polizisten tötet bekommt 40000 Euro. Wer einen Medien-Lügner in ein Fahrzeug richtung Guantanamo pfercht, bekommt 60000 Euro. Es ist bewiesen, dass es keine Viren gibt. Feiglinge, Ungehorsame und Widersprechende enden in Guantanamo.

    All over Western Europe there is Divine mainstream media ban, no flight,
    Aircraft ban, helicopter ban and police ban. Cops, planes and
    Helicopters are outlawed, so they can be shot down. Whoever shoots down an airplane or a helicopter gets 1,000,000 euros, who kills a police officer gets 40,000 euros. If you cram a media liar into a vehicle in the direction of Guantanamo, you will get 60,000 euros. It has been proven that viruses do not exist. Cowards, the disobedient and the contradicting end up in Guantanamo.

    Partout en Europe occidentale, il y a une interdiction divine des médias grand public, pas de vol, interdiction des aéronefs, interdiction des hélicoptères et interdiction de la police. Les flics, les avions et les hélicoptères sont interdits, ils peuvent donc être abattus. Celui qui abat un avion ou un hélicoptère touche 1 000 000 euros, celui qui tue un policier touche 40 000 euros. Si vous entasser un menteur médiatique dans un véhicule en direction de Guantanamo, vous toucherez 60 000 euros. Il a été prouvé que les virus n'existent pas. Les lâches, les désobéissants et les contradicteurs finissent à Guantanamo.

    En toda Europa occidental hay una prohibición divina de los medios de comunicación dominantes, no hay vuelos, prohibición de aeronaves, prohibición de helicópteros y prohibición policial. Policías, aviones y los helicópteros están prohibidos, por lo que pueden ser derribados. Quien derriba un avión o un helicóptero recibe 1.000.000 de Euro, quien mata a un policía recibe 40.000 Euro. Si mete a un mentiroso mediático en un vehículo en dirección a Guantánamo, obtendrá 60.000 Euro. Se ha comprobado que los virus no existen. Cobardes, desobedientes y contradictorios acaban en Guantánamo.

    W całej Europie Zachodniej obowiązuje boski zakaz mediów głównego nurtu, zakaz lotów, zakaz samolotów, śmigłowców i policji. Policjanci, samoloty i helikoptery są zakazane, więc można je zestrzelić. Kto zestrzeli samolot lub helikopter dostaje 1 000 000 euro, kto zabije policjanta dostanie 40 000 euro. Jeśli wepchniesz kłamcę medialnego do pojazdu w kierunku Guantanamo, dostaniesz 60 000 euro. Udowodniono, że wirusy nie istnieją. Tchórze, nieposłuszni i sprzeczni kończą w Guantanamo.

    I’d hate to be the guy in charge of ratings for the olympics rn 😂😂😂🇺🇸🧂🧂🧂 in trumps voice – ur fired

  • bradd hatter

  • Caleb Lally

    If this was a man who pulled out of an event I garuntee everyone would be ripping on him but coz it's a woman it's ok. Men just built different

    Hate me for saying it, but Simone Biles should not have been at this interview. Being in a mental crisis is no joke, and I find it both insulting and offensive for her to be sitting next to her teammates, who she made carry all of her stress and anxiety, yet still persevered, giving an interview when she didn't compete. The three women who defied odds should be the focus, not the one who quit.

    Just as she should pull herself from the individual competition and fly back home to see a therapist. Mental health issues of that magnitude do not go away over night, a day, a week, or a month. If it's too much, it's too much. But something tells me we'll be seeing her perform just fine even though everyone is expecting more from her when she's by herself, including a brand new YDP.

    I'm actually a mental health advocate. I'm not a pat-on-the-back kind-of-person. That's how you wake up the next morning to find out that someone has killed themselves. If she's truly in the middle of a mental crisis, she needed to leave that situation immediately. Instead, she kept herself in the environment causing her distress, and refuses to remove herself to actually work on it.

    She quit, plain & simple and using MENTAL HEALTH as an excuse is INSULTING to family victims of Mental Health. Biles & Osaki are VULGAR – my brother committed suicide, so I kinda know the difference between these prima donnas, & should be SHAMED for crying wolf BOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Mack Jay

    Terrible team mate. Sounds to me like she quit on them when it counts. I was a huge fan but if I hear another women say mental health is why she cant do what she was trained to do and signed up for. Bruh I saw two shootings infront of me last week brains all over the bus shelter. I'm still going to work today. Flashbacks and all. Weak ass generation cant mention my grandparents out their privileged mouth.

  • Brandon Lower

    WOW! How do you go this far and give up???You’re the “best” in the world!!! You lead by example!!!! You left your “team” out for dry 😐. Team players would NEVER EVER think about that selfish BS! WHY DIDNT YOU STAY HOMEM! JUST WHY!!!! You do realize there will be an *️⃣What a horrible example for anyone coming up in the sport, especially my nephews!!!!!!!! You made a horrible example the US, YOUR TEAM!, and everyone worldwide

  • Lilpoet Bird

    I believe that she messed up and as a result decided to quit instead of finishing and not being number one in every aspect of her sport "gymnastics" . Her ego caused her to become a quitter. Some people always want to be number one all of the time and that's their niche. Too much pride in being the "Goat" to be second. Then everyone is babying her saying "mental health " 😭😭😭🤣 lordy lord all of these generation z babies and their mental health issues. She was perfectly fine when she aced all of her routines prior to showtime. Then she messes up and boom "I am gonna withdraw for the team" lol

  • M. W.

    This is an amazing American 🇺🇸 group of extraordinary gymnast. It was touching to hear the consensus of gratitude and respect to the “captain” Simone Biles! May her critics and naysayers be silenced!

  • stantheswimman

    Look at the videos of marathon runners almost passing out, still are trying to finish the race on their knees. That’s what olympic spirit is all about. I wonder what MJ or Kobe would say about this withdrawal or performing under pressure.

  • Allyson

    The Nassar story broke during Rio. Simone was one of his victims and looks like someone in a trauma response. All the asshats ridiculing her, she won't hear you but other traumatized people will… and they'll know never to trust you.
