To appear before an audience, is a stressful human experience.
Knowing you are a superstar athlete, with high expectations from millions of people can be mentally nerve wrecking. For Simon Biles the great gymnast, why not become so stressed out that she feels like she needs to relax.
To me that is having control of your life> Simone is truly calling her own shots!!
I admire Simone Biles for her consideration of her teammates and her own mental well-being. While knowing her sponsors were not going to be delightful about her pulling out from certain competitions. Tuesday she is scheduled to compete in the balance beam final at the Olympic Games.
Simone is is control of her own dynasty.
