Uncharacteristic mistakes has Simone Biles feeling like she has the world on her shoulders

Tokyo- Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is already starting to feel the pressure of competing in Tokyo.

On Sunday, Team USA had a tough day all together. Mistakes and tough scores had Team USA scratching their heads. Biles, who is projected to win Gold had a few errors herself, which was something that seemed unreal to others. Biles had some huge errors on her floor routine. After trying a tumbling pass, Biles went out of bounds. On the balance beam event, Biles finished in seventh. Biles did just enough to qualify.

After a rough start, Biles went to social media to express herself. "[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," Biles said on Instagram. "I know I brush it off and make it seem like pressure doesn't affect me but damn sometimes it's hard hahaha! The Olympics is no joke!"
