  1. poor girl she must’ve been under so much pressure. Either way her team mates performed well given the situation.

  2. Mental health and well being is more important than anything else. You will always be a champion!

  3. 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 celebration its health and wellbeing, we all humans at the end of the day.

  4. Wow, everybody is constantly going through some things in life! That’s her decision, so support it 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  5. 👏👏👏 lets hope this is the beginning of the end of Olympic athletes being forced to silently destroy themselves physically and mentally and feeling like they have to push themselves beyond their limits. She and all athletes deserve to be able to rest and recover as needed free of judgement, just as everybody else should be.

  6. “When I start losing I quit on my team because I ain’t taking no L after all that talking I did” is what this quote should say

  7. The pressure and stress on these athletes is unimaginable. It’s not like it used to be. Social media and on the second analysis means these people are subject to critique every second of their lives. It’s too much.
