    When your mind tells you are not in championship mode but more of a hey y’all watch this mode it’s wise to take a pass.

    If you’re really, really, really, really, really, REALLY good at one particular thing, it means that you’ve probably been missing out on a whole lot of other things.

    Sure.. “this” got her way more publicity than winning a mere medal.

    Taking care of oneself, and rightly so.

    Taking care of yourself is never a bad thing. Wish I had done that better.

    It is what it is. She made the correct decision for HER. Media needs to leave her alone. BTW, great illustration, Steve

    Her mental focus is ‘on the fritz’, she should not compete; else she could be seriously injured. She’s a champion competitor and I applaud her making the difficult choice to protect herself.

    Steve, good ’toon ♥

    I’m just glad that the nortorious gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi has long since retired. He wouldn’t have let her back off and had that happened, it’s not hard to imagine disaster.

    Sorry, bub. I’ve known a number of folks who could do both…and all at once. Simply ordering your life and establishing priorities is all. And ignoring folks who say you can’t do that. :-]
