Golfer Rory McIlroy agrees with US gymnastics superstar Simone Biles in the decision to make the US lose the women’s team gold medal at Tokyo 2020.

“I support Simone 100%. To be at our best, we need to peak mentally and physically. If not, we’ll just have to act like Simone. Naomi Osaka did the right thing by quitting the French Open. I myself have struggled psychologically, so I am very impressed with these two women, “McIlroy said on July 29, when asked about Biles’ sudden drop out of his forte.

The Northern Ireland player himself born in 1989 is also attending the Olympics. He ranked T20 with a score of -2 after the opening round of Olympic golf yesterday, July 29.

McIlroy is a golf star, owning four majors in 19 PGA Tour championships, accumulating 106 weeks at the top of the world professional golf rankings (OWGR). He understood the cause of Biles’ stress.

“I live in the US and I see Simone on every TV or advertisement with the theme of the Olympics. In terms of burden of expectations, my hometown Ireland with six million people is no match for a country of more than 300 million people like the US. So, I think Simone is under enormous pressure,” this golfer commented.

“In the past, we often talk about knee and elbow injuries. Sports have a common concept that you have to push yourself to overcome, otherwise you are not athletes. I agree, but mental strength is not maximum, then It’s also trauma. We’ve seen stars like Michael Phelps, Naomi and recently Simone speak out on this issue. Now it’s not a secret or taboo topic anymore. I hope the story goes. will soon spread more widely in the sports world, “McIlroy added.

At Tokyo 2020, Biles registered all four events that won gold medals in Rio 2016. But on July 27, the American star suddenly gave up after an unsuccessful horse jump in the women’s team final with Russia. “When you’re in a state of extreme stress, it’s easy to panic. I need to focus on my mental health, not jeopardizing my health and well-being,” Biles explains. decided to withdraw. Then, for mental health, she left out the almighty part and left the content of horse jumping and freestyle open.

In addition to four Olympic gold medals, Biles owns 19 equal titles at the World Championships, and is considered a symbol of the fight against racism and sexual abuse against athletes.
