Criticize Simone Biles? Read This First

By | July 28, 2021 | 0 Comments

Before you feel free to condemn Simone Biles for withdrawing from Olympic competition, read this account of Julissa Gomez, another champion gymnast who was rendered quadriplegic and died at age 18 from a difficult move gone wrong.

You want to do difficult, dangerous athletic moves? You want to do them in less than optimum physical or mental condition? Go right ahead. But don’t tell anyone else to risk her life or health. Don’t presume to advise someone who has spent her life in a sport of which she knows infinitely more than you. Don’t claim to discern her motivation unless your mind-reader’s license is current.
