Also available on the nbc app

Simone Biles is opening up about the pressure of the Olympic Games. “[I]t wasn’t an easy day or my best but I got through it. I truly do feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders at times. I know I brush it off and make it seem like pressure doesn’t affect me but damn sometimes it’s hard,” she wrote. Simone has been known to tackle some of the most difficult elements in the sport and even has a number of moves named after her already but heading into the team finals the United States fell behind the athletes from the Russian Olympic Committee. The score has them in second place for the first time in more than a decade. “The [O]lympics is no joke! BUT I’m happy my family was able to be with me virtually. They mean the world to me,” Simone continued.
