And now she quit the individual all around too…. It doesn’t matter who you are, quitting should be avoided at all costs. Always try no matter the circumstances or the outcome. But it is ok to quit sometimes. The hard thing to believe about this is that she’s such a competitor that she quit at the highest moment and one of the highest levels of competition. She also (literally) quit on her team.
We often focus on the physical aspects of sports but we should never ignore the mental aspects as is the mind is everything. Sports are more mental than physical and to be one of the best in anything you do, you have to be mentally tough.
I question if this was her actual decision or was she told to do this. Then again, maybe I just have a hard time believe I g a top athlete who is consider one of the best to ever compete in her sport, a quitter….
