Turn Record World Champion Simone Biles has called her start at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in retrospect as an error. "If you look at what I've been through everything in the last seven years, I would never have been able to belong back to the Olympic team," Biles said the "New York Magazine" and added: "I should have stopped took a long time before Tokyo."
Biles belonged to hundreds of gymnasts and their parents who had complained of sexual abuse against the former American team doctor Larry Nassar. This has demanded a "high emotional tribute". "It was too much. But I did not want to let him take me away, for which I worked hard for six years old," Biles said. Therefore, she displaced that so long, "like my mind and my body allowed it to me".
The 24-year-old exceptional athletin from Ohio was presented from Tokyo as a candidate on several Olympic gold medals. But after leaving the team final, she had publicly made mental problems and therefore renounced several starts.
