The Olympian decided not to compete because mentally she just wasn't there, demonstrating to the world that mental health should always come first.
Biles' decision is a real departure from the norm in competitive sport, which normally prides achievement and greatness over mental well-being. However, it's not the first time that an athlete has opened up about their mental health and advocated for change.
