After the Tokyo 2020 Olympics when Biles decided to withdraw from the finals, many supported her but at the same time, many criticized her for quitting and giving up. But still, it didn’t change the fact that she initiated the discussion on mental health and is surely making changes. And as she comes back, she is taking care of her mental health by going to therapy.
The 26-year-old intends to keep her competitive goals a little bit secretive as she is trying to keep a balance between her personal and professional life. But seeing Simone back in the gym practicing, one thing is for sure she is definitely going to Paris!
Simone Biles’ approach to competing in the Paris 2024 Olympics
After her two-year break to work on her mental health, Simone Biles reveals that being intentional with her time has been the key to her success in the U.S. Classics. When asked what her approach is for competing for the Summer Olympics, the 26-year-old Olympic medalist said, “being more cautious.”
She said, “I think I have to take care of myself a little bit more and listen to my body and make sure that I’m making time for the important things in life.”
Biles is working on being intentional with her time, like going to therapy and keeping everything in check so that she can give her best in the gym. Then she took care of her husband, parents, friends, and all the good things. The olympian has worked hard on herself and changed a lot since the Tokyo Olympics. Now, with her physical well-being, she equally prioritizes her mental health.
The results of Biles’ new approach to competitive gymnastics have been seen in the U.S. Gymnastics Championship by winning the eighth all-around title. And she isn’t done yet, as she sets her eyes on the Paris Olympics.
