Photographers always seek action. And the action in these games is called Simone Biles. Half an hour before her debut at the Ariake Gymnastics Arena, she appears on several buses with her cameras and her tripods and during the last two hours pursue her all over the pavilion in a kind of 'flashmob'. As there is no one in the stands, when the American faces the foal, she is placed in the seats of the northern area. For asymmetric bars, they occupy the West Fund. And for the balance bar, the east. Only when she competes on floor, in the center of the enclosure, are divided to capture, from all possible angles, an error in the closing of her third diagonal. 'Chas, chas, chas, chas', the sound of the flashes is the only thing that is heard in a pavilion that, before and after the appearance of biles is quiet, practically silent.
Despite its irregular classification, and before the absence of Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, the gymnast is the star that brighters the most in Tokyo and there is no one who does not want to look at it. Like photographers, television cameras bring him an individual follow-up-she competes who competes on the back of her-and journalists embrace the mixed zone just to see her pass, because she will not talk until she finishes a final.
It has many ahead and, in them, an objective: confirm with medals what their movements already shouted, which is the best gymnast in history and surely the best athlete in history. If she gets five golds, she would match the most laureate woman in the history of games, the Ukrainian Larisa Latynina (nine gold), would surpass Vitaly Scherbo (six) and would only be ahead of the unattainable Phelps (23). She would do it in just two editions and with legs to reach the Games of Paris 2024, so she would be an expandable record.
"Every time everything is harder because I just seek to overcome myself, win myself. Sometimes when I'm going to compete, I'm afraid that, I wonder: 'Can I do it better than I've already done? Can I improve? What I did in the last games? "He commented a few weeks ago in an interview in the 'NBC' in which she was sincere. "Do you really think someone can win you?" They asked him and, after a silence and an accomplice smile, she resigned to the topics and said the truth. "You can never know at all, but if I do it as I should I think it will be very, very complicated," he confess who was presented in Tokyo with the usual bright blue monkey of the United States and its usual ribbon closing the bow. Despite some failures in her best appliances, she was classified for the six end, even in that of asymmetric, the desire that worse handles. On Tuesday (from 12.45) the dance will begin with the team competition. Then the full contest will come on Thursday 29 and between Sunday 1 and Tuesday, August 3, the devices.
His confidence is very high because he has already organized a tour of his successes called 'Gold Over America Tour' with tickets for sale for September in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Oklahoma City ... and so until the Grand Final in November at Brooklyn Barclays Center or Boston TD Garden. It is part of the new facet of businesswoman, another sample of him from the river games. There, 19 years old, he fulfilled the canons of the gymnastics, who has always granted more voice to the coaches than the protagonists, but of all that he already got tired. The 'Me Too' movement and its complaint in January 2018 as a victim of Dr. Larry Nassar were the discovery of a Biles beyond the borders of his sport and, since then, with his involvement in the 'Black Lives Matter' campaign, The rupture of your contract with Nike or with your campaign to get the US Federation of Gymnastics to change from top to bottom, has been made icon.
It appears from the Costa Ariake Gymnastics Arena and all its rivals look at the front of the United States team, the most numerous, with the four headlines and the two specialists. For some of them, such as Jamaican Danusia Francis, who jelly from the other tip of the pavilion when she finishes her exercises, Biles is the idol of her and the simple fact of competing in her same group of classification, an honor. The rest of the gymnasts are doing his own with greater or lesser luck, but when she competes the champion he is known about her, because all observe her, although they do not always owe her. An example, the Australian Emily Whitehead is about to face the foal, but her companion Georgia Godwin is barely attends because she is billed in the balance bar.
"It's the best, it's the best," Answer Francis in Mixa Zone on the American who coincidentally invited him to participate in the 'Gold Over America Tour' tour. "How can I not encourage her when she competes?" Recognizes the Jamaican and shows that she likes action. And the action in these games is called Simone Biles.Date Of Update: 26 July 2021, 07:59
