“I was just thinking, ‘Do it like a workout. Don’t try to exaggerate anything “, because I tend as soon as I raise my hand to be in control, which I did a little bit, but at least I was always on my feet”, Biles said at the time, via Yahoo Sports. “It’s a new leap. I’m proud of how the day went, although it was a bit rough and unusual. But it was okay. “
Biles, who has another move on the beam bearing his name, expressed fears that the difficulty of his tricks could cost him points during the Games.
Biles said in an episode of her Facebook series, “Simone Against Herself,” the judges are withholding her points because her abilities are way ahead of the competition.
“I’m almost 99.9% sure if another athlete did it besides me they’d give her the correct credit,” said Biles, reflecting on the new moves she’s performed on floor and beam at the Championships. of the world 2019.
“But since I’m already way ahead of everyone else, they kind of want to pull it off. … Because sometimes they don’t think it’s fair that I win all the time. “
