Simone Biles is the latest athlete vocal about mental health By Conor Murray and Elisha Fieldstadt

After pulling out of the Olympic women’s gymnastics team and all-around competitions, Simone Biles became the latest athlete at the center of the push to destigmatize mental health conversations in sports.

Biles withdrew from the team final citing the emotional toll of the Games, telling Hoda Kotb on the "TODAY" show that “coming to the Olympics and being head star isn't an easy feat.” She contributed to the team’s score just on the vault, where she performed a less difficult move than originally planned. The U.S. team went on to win the silver medal.
