In the week that Simone Biles announced her decision not to compete in the gymnastic team and individual all-around finals of the Tokyo Olympics, mental health is a hot topic. 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.

Check out this gallery to hear what a certain few athletes have to say on the matter.
