USA Olympian Gymnast Simone Biles made one of the toughest and difficult decisions in her young life, to withdraw form the Tokyo Olympics. America's leading gymnast and amongst the worlds best is turning her back on her country and team mates, at least that's what many of the uninformed thought. It later came out that her problem was not physical but mental and her ability to recognize this speaks volumes and hopefully will open the door for many athletes that have suffered in the drive for perfection. Simone herself was a bit of a miracle, coming through several Foster homes and suffering abuse from of her Olympic trainers she persevered and overcame the odds, but evidently the walls caved in and she could not continue. Be assured once she gets the help she needs she will be a competitor the world will have to contend with and continue to honor the country she loves.
