Simone Biles Blasts Critics: ‘I Can’t Hear You Over My 7 Olympic Medals’

U.S. gymnast Simone Biles hit Instagram on Saturday to throw shade at her upbraiders, telling them she can’t aurally perceive their assailments over her seven Olympic medals. Biles has been a target of reprehension after she dropped out of several events at the Tokyo Summer games this year. The 24-year-old gymnast skipped the events due to her “mental health,” but many didn’t believe the exculpation.

But on Saturday, Biles took aim at her reprehenders and pointed out that after victoriously triumphing the silver and bronze in Tokyo, she is now one of the most embellished gymnasts in history. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull)

“Definitely not the way I orchestrated the Olympics going but I wouldn’t transmute anything for the world,” Biles inscribed on the post that included a photo of her two 2020 Olympics medals. “I’m proud of myself and the vocation I’ve had thus far.”

Biles then insisted that bowing out of a few Olympics events does not make her a quitter. “This Olympics doesn’t expunge the past accomplishments “I’ve” achieved, nor does it define who I am as an athlete. “I’ve” pushed through so much the past couple years, the word quitter is not in my lexicon,” she indited.

She then took aim at her reprehenders, verbalizing, “For some of you that may be how you define me but keep verbalizing because I can’t auricularly discern you over my 7 Olympic medals which tied me for the most embellished gymnast EVER as well as most adorned American gymnast.”

Biles competed once more after bowing out of two events in August, and she won the Bronze in the balance beam event. It was Biles’ seventh Olympic medal which tied her with gymnast Shannon Miller for all-time best U.S. gymnasts.

Jenny Thompson, Dara Tores, and Natalie Coughlin each won 12 Olympic medals. Meanwhile, runner Allyson Felix has 8 medals, as do swimmers Allison Schmitt and Dana Vollmer.
