Simone Biles Talks Tokyo Olympics in Candid New Instagram Post: ‘I’m Proud of Myself’

Simone Biles is getting super candid again and we can't get enough.

It's been a full month since the 24-year-old gymnast competed at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, and she turned to Instagram to reflect on all her experiences.

“Can’t believe it’s already been a month,” she said. “Definitely not the way I planned the Olympics going but I wouldn’t change anything for the world. I’m proud of myself and the career I’ve had thus far.”

Biles is referring to the fact that, during the Tokyo Olympics, she suffered from the “twisties,” and ended up withdrawing from the team final, the individual all-around and three event finals. However, she still earned a silver medal for her participation in part of the team final, and when she returned to the competition stage to compete in the balance beam event, she nabbed a bronze medal as well.

When Biles withdrew from the events, she was very outspoken about prioritizing her mental health and she received a wave of support from family, friends and fellow celebs.

Now, in her latest post she made sure to add: “This olympics doesn’t erase the past accomplishments I’ve achieved nor does it define who I am as an athlete.” Among those past achievements are seven Olympic medals and twenty-five World Championship medals (nbd).

Biles also added, “I’ve pushed through so much the past couple years, the word quitter is not in my vocabulary. For some of you that may be how you define me but keep talking because I can’t hear you over my 7 olympic medals which tied me for the most decorated gymnast EVER as well as most decorated american gymnast.” She also included an image of her two medals from the Tokyo games.

We love you, Simone.
