There were so many things wrong with the 2020 Summer Olympics I was surprised they hadn't been permanently canceled. The Covid-19 pandemic was responsible for the one year delay affecting many of the athletes, their coaches, families, and almost empty stadiums. Many athletes got sick along the way and were unable to compete.
Women's gymnastics is always a favorite among viewers.
This year the superstar was Simone Biles from the US who taught the
world about mental health and why she had to drop out of competition.
On the final day of artistic gymnastics Simone Biles, 24, closed the curtain with grit and determination. She scored 14.000 and finished third behind two Chinese gymnasts. This is a bronze medal that feels like gold. She now has seven career Olympic medals. Bravo. I watched Simone's prerecorded beam routine when it aired hours later and she was amazing.
We will remember Simone Biles a brave athlete who bared her soul to society by talking about mental health issues which we are all coming to realize encompasses the programming of most people in the simulation to create emotional experiences and how to balance them in life.
