Gymnastic Doesn't Need Struggle

Simone Biles, a well-known athlete, came over to the podcast "Glamour, " where she talked and cleared out the myths and misconceptions people have on their minds related to gymnastics. 

She has divided people's misunderstandings and assumptions into three categories: sport, lifestyle, and physique. 

The first assumption that she talked about was the gymnast having a short career. 

She said it wasn't true as the gymnast got NCAA scholarships when they were in college, and their retirement age is around 23. 

She then said that gymnast is an expensive sport, and it takes lots of dedication and hard work, and they don't get any break over there. 

Another valid assumption on which she agreed was one should start gymnast in early life. 

Simone started her career as a gymnast when she was seven, and she was told that she was late. 

She opened up that she is pretty scared of heights, and she tries to keep herself away from skydiving and other height stuff. 

She says that training is physically and mentally equal. She disagreed to the point where it was told that gymnast athletes don't have to struggle. 

She said that she had to work for years. She then cleared out myths and assumptions about her lifestyle. 

She opened up that her sister is a former gymnast, but she left her career because people compared her with Simone, and because of that, she gave up on her career.

Another thing was their intimate means, and for that, she replied yes because as an athlete, their body muscles grow up faster than other normal kids, and they are stronger than man's over their age group.
