Nobody else will say it, so I guess I will. I mean, there’s no other way to put it.
Simone Biles let down her teammates and the country on the World’s biggest stage.
I can’t believe that everybody is giving her a pass for this morning. If your the best in the world and claim to be the greatest of all time, you can’t bow out after one event and lose to the Russians. Can’t do it.
They’re claiming she’s hurt, but somebody let slip that it is a mental issue. I think she cracked. Boiling water in her veins. Even if she is hurt, gotta push through it for your teammates, no? Or at least release your injury so we know how bad it is.
Can you imagine if Lebron played Game 1 of the NBA Finals and then sat out the rest of the series? He’d be crucified. Burned at the stake. Why not the same reaction for another so-called GOAT. I like my GOATs to be winners. Michael Phelps goes for eight gold medals in Beijing. Michael Phelps wins eight gold medals in Beijing. GOAT shit.
Personally, I have her fourth. She’s on the Mount Rushmore, but she’s Teddy Roosevelt tucked back in the corner.
Now, she has a chance to redeem herself. The women’s all-around is on Thursday. I hope she wipes the floor with the Russians and the Chinese. She should, right? Because she’s the GOAT?
