Do we think people love Simone Biles or do we think they love Simone Biles? The answer is an overwhelming yes, and I love to see it.
She had a very tough time in Japan after having to withdraw from multiple events because of mental health issues, and plenty of people dragged her on social media.
After several days of brutal treatment in the media, Biles returned to close out the games with a bronze medal and she returned home to a hero’s welcome.
If the situation doesn’t pull at your heartstrings, then I don’t know what will.
Simone Biles returned Tuesday to the Olympics, and closed out her time in Tokyo with a medal.
