Simone may be the first woman in more than 50 years to repeat as an Olympic champion, as reported by USA Today. However, the press of winning in Tokyo could be a lot for Simone. Especially, since the world is watching.
Will Simone rise to the occasion?
Bar none, Simone is the G.O.A.T. There has never been any other gymnast to accomplish more. The 4ft 8 powerhouse is a force to be reckoned with. The USA is counting on Simone to bring home at least 5 Gold medals. Simone could win all around vault and floor, balance beam and uneven bars. But even Simone, is feeling the pressure.

Clearly, Simone thinks about if she can live up to everyone’s expectations. On Sunday Simone had a difficult time qualifying. In fact, Simone finished with a point less than Russia. She almost fell off the podium during her floor exercise and landed out of bounds in her routine. Nevertheless, Simone did qualify to move on to the next round. Needless to say, our expectations are still high for Simone. Hopefully, she will meet the challenge.
Either way, Simone is the greatest gymnast of all time. Just check out her resume, Simone has 4 gold medals and 19 world championship medals. This alone sets Simone apart from her competitors. I can’t wait for Simone to come home with the gold. I truly believe we will not be disappointed. What about you?
