1) I doubt she has a $25M + annual contract paying her to be a gymnast, so I don’t hold her to the same standard I do a Tom Brady.
2) She’s a woman. We can’t expect a whole lot. Now that’s not to say we shouldn’t expect more, especially when they whine about not making as much as men (see women’s soccer team), but we shouldn’t be surprised.
End of the day, I agree with everyone that her pulling out shouldn’t be celebrated. She quit on her team at one of the biggest events in the world. When we celebrate it, we’re teaching kids that quitting is okay. Nah, not at the elite levels these athletes are at...
