Simone Biles Is Being Praised By These Bollywood Celebs: Deets Inside
Simone Arianne Biles (born March 14, 1997) is an American artistic gymnast. With a combined total of 31 Olympic and World Championship medals, Biles is the most decorated American gymnast and is one of the greatest and most dominant gymnasts of all time.
She recently withdraws her name from Tokyo Olympics. The main reason for withdrawing was her mental health. She said, “It just sucks when you’re fighting with your own head.” Biles broke down in tears while explaining her decision in a press conference. She said she wasn’t in the right place mentally to compete and wanted to avoid injury.
While everyone is applauding and supporting her for taking this big step, our Bollywood celebs are not behind. Several Bollywood celebrities, such as Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, and Varun Dhawan extended support, taking to their social media handles-
Calling her a role model and a champion, Priyanka Chopra revealed about the time she met Simone and how she blew her away with her “vulnerability and self-awareness”. PC posted an IGTV video with Simone with caption – I had the joy of getting to know @simonebiles a few years ago, and she blew me away then with her vulnerability and self-awareness.
Simone, yesterday we were reminded why you are truly the GOAT, and why nothing supersedes taking care of ourselves…body, AND mind. I cannot fathom the impossible pressure you all perform under, but knowing where you need to draw the line and step away – TO CHOOSE YOURSELF – is most important. Only when we are okay can we perform at our best, and enjoy doing so. Thank you for helping normalize that even under tremendous pressure, it’s ok to be human. Thank you for your courage and strength. You are a role model, and just like the rest of the world I’m so inspired and awed by you. Once again you have shown us what it truly means to be a champion. Sending ❤️
