Olympic gold medalist from the 2008 Beijing Games, Henry Cejudo, has told gymnast Simone Biles to “check herself” after she withdrew from all but one event in Tokyo due to mental health.
The gold medalist freestyle wrestler said in a video posted to Twitter: “If you start to think that you’re the GOAT or the greatest of all time – then you’re gonna have to live it man.
“I think there’s time for a little bit of tough love.
“If she was my sister this is exactly what I would do. I would never say something that I wouldn’t say to my family, or even to me, because I believe that sometimes we need a little kick in the arse. We really do, man.
“What we need is for someone to tell us and check us that it’s every four years, in this situation five years, in order for you to go down as one of the greatest athletes of all time.”
