Simone Biles is continuing to put her mental health first. The 7-time-Olympic medalist revealed in an interview that she will only train again if it won't negatively impact her mental health. "The mental aspect obviously got me during Tokyo and it's, like, some of those things you can't ignore, and my body didn't ignore," she told US Weekly. "If we can keep that under control, I would love to train again. But then, at the end of the day, if it costs me my peace, I'm going to step away."
