“Simone Biles didn’t turn up the volume on mental health. She made a mockery of mental health! Mental health in terms of somebody’s belief in self and where they stand in the universe – that is a serious problem. Of course we need to dive in people’s mental health...she had the yips - the twisties!"

On today's edition of The Doug Gottlieb Show, Doug reacts to Time Magazine announcing USA Gymnast Simone Biles as their Athlete of the Year. Biles withdrawing from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics raised the volume on mental health issues, but Doug discusses that her departure made a mockery of mental health and explains why people who don’t understand sports shouldn’t cover sports.
