It's fine if they are willing to sacrifice their position in the World of competition for their mental health. Champions are not only those who are physically strong, but emotionally and mentally strong as well. While being strong in one area, the competition has revealed a weakness in another. Someone going through much more pain will likely fill in the gap left by these two, because in the end, it's the one who finishes the race in first place that wins, not the fastest.
So every US team member that doesn't finish with a gold...is loser? Our country leads the world this year in medals and still leads the world in Gold medals historically. Unlike the memes statement. We have 13 gold's and counting as of now. And we are doing that without the snowflakes, currently depicted. That should be the story here.
Withdrawal from the games forced other US athletes to compete in events that they were not prepared to compete in....all because Simone didn't do as well as she thought she should have done. I don't know about Naomi - but I suspect the result is similar.
This is the epitome of entitlement. She couldn't win - so she won't play anymore, unconcerned for the consequences her decisions are forcing upon others.
The woke crowd started this nonsense early, which is why I have avoided the Olympics this cycle. Normally, I would have set alarms to watch certain events - but I have no interest in seeing athletes who are supposed to represent the best America has to offer, behaving like this.
At a time when people are starving for entertainment - the games ratings and viewership are probing new depths.
I hope the sponsors see the diminished returns on their investments and invest less. Perhaps that will encourage the trainers and athletes to reconsider turning the games into a political platform.
That's irrelevant. What's past is past.
This is not about her but about The Leftist Woke People who have changed the world for the worse. It could be anybody. In my day as you can see with Buck Shelford, we got on with the job. We Kiwis never say die, not unlike Leonidas at Thermopylae. This woke Leftist wussy garbage is destroying the Western world and we need snapping out of it.
survival of the fittest, does that means anything to you? Only the strong can and will survive. Humans have survived because they can move on and adapt. Not because they want to remain in "victim" status. If you can't adapt and overcome, you are doomed to fail. Get some self respect.
He can say it to me, I endured virtually every kind of abuse that could be inflicted on a child. It wasn't until I broke the victim mentality that I began to move forward in life. It took as long to recover from it as I had to endure it - I consider that my life really began at 25...that's when I really started to grow, rather than play catch up.
He isn't wrong. What's past is past - it either makes you stronger or destroys you.
What does that have to do with this meme or my comments here? You're, obviously, targeting me for my comments elsewhere - but I have no inclination to defend my statements made elsewhere, in this thread.
I'm not hard to find - you might even find something relevant to sling mud at at the #1 and #2 positions of the politics stream.
Q: How the f**k did Trump get involved? Hes been out of office for how many months now, and he's still at the forefront of your mind. Smh. For a person that does not like him, you sure do know a lot about him.
