Simone Biles is opening up about her mental health struggles in an emotional new video.
Facebook recently released episode 6 of the Facebook Watch series, Simone vs Herself, a documentary giving fans and followers an inside glimpse of the life of the 24-year-old Olympic champion.
The episode, which is the first of two finale installments, centers around Biles as she takes on the U.S. Olympic Trials prior to the games. From approximately 00:24 to 1:57, viewers get a glimpse into the athlete’s video diary shot in Tokyo. In this portion of the clip, Biles speaks about her mental state and experiencing the “twisties,” a mental phenomenon that results in a gymnast no longer being able to perform a trick (or tricks) she’s done hundreds of times.
