The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Summer games were indeed a successful one for the United States, which racked up a total of 113 medals in multiple sports in Tokyo, Japan.

While a lot of American athletes were celebrated for their accomplishments, world-class gymnast Simone Biles took in a lot of scrutiny from the public.

After all, she was labeled a “quitter” and was pretty much called every bad name in the book, following her decision to sit out some of the group events in Tokyo citing mental and physical health issues.

Months after the games, she still receives slander online on a daily basis.

The 24-year-old gymnastic superstar, however, recently addressed it all in a brave social media post. She wrote:

“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. This Olympics doesn’t erase the past accomplishments I’ve achieved nor does it define who I am as an athlete.”

Lastly, Biles had this message to all her critics who continue to diminish her character not only as an athlete but as a person.

“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.”

Preach, Simone. Keep doing you, girl.
