Gymnast Simone Biles says she is still dealing with “twist” and is afraid to do gymnastics.
In an interview “Today” NBC’s Hoda Kotb Biles counterattacked tears as she explained her mental health sacrifice.
“I don’t think people understand the magnitude of what I experience,” Biles said.
The gold medal gymnast believes that there is a link between the “twist” she described as being out of sync with the body and the suppression of emotions after sexual abuse by Dr. Larry Nassar.
Biles said the treatment helped her cope with and move forward with past trauma.
She is currently touring with other Olympic gymnasts, but she said the stunts did not include a twist. But she hopes she can twist in the air again in the future.
