Gymnast MyKayla Skinner chatted with Access Hollywood’s Scott Evans after her Olympic dream was cut short after she failed to qualify at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. MyKayla praised fellow teammate Simone Biles for showing her support during the difficult time. “I texted (Simone) that night and I was like, ‘I’m crying, I can’t keep it in.’ I talked to her this morning and she was like, ‘I was about to come into your room but I was like, I’m just gonna let you be. Soak it all in, you know.’ Definitely a lot of tears shed last night,” MyKayla said.
