The athlete had a very rocky road at this year’s Games, having gone into the competition expected to repeat, if not improve upon, the five-medal haul she brought home from Rio in 2016. 

However she left Japan with two medals in hand: a silver from the team final and a bronze on the balance beam. 

The gymnast sparked furious controversy with her decision, with some praising her for spotlighting the importance of mental health, while others accused her of ‘quitting’ and ‘abandoning’ her team.

Speaking about her struggle, Simone hit out at those who criticized her decision to withdraw from both the finals, insisting that she did not ‘quit’, while noting that mental health is just as serious as physical health. 

She shared a video from training in which she crashed to the ground while trying to perform her uneven bars dismount, which requires her to twist her body around in the air. 

‘For anyone saying I quit. I didn’t quit, my mind and body are simply not in sync,’ she wrote.

‘As you can see [in the video]. I don’t think you realize how hard this is on hard/competition surface. Nor do I have to explain why I put health first. Physical health is mental health.’

During his girlfriend’s time in Tokyo, Jonathan regularly voiced his support for her on social media, where he posted several gushing tributes to the gymnast – while also taking a thinly-veiled swipe at her critics by sharing a quote from baseball legend Babe Ruth about ‘the loudest boos coming from the cheapest seats’.

Following her bronze medal win on the balance beam – Jonathan expressed his ‘pride’ at seeing her back on the podium.

‘Words can’t express how proud of you I am right now,’ Jonathan wrote alongside a picture of his girlfriend.

He also vowed to stand by her ‘through whatever’ in a sweet post shared on his feed, where he wrote a lengthy message of support for his girlfriend alongside several pictures of them together.

‘Imma ride with you through whatever baby,’ he wrote. ‘Your strength and courage is unmatched and you inspire me more and more everyday SB.

‘You always gone be my champ baby and don’t you ever forget that, I love you so much and I can’t wait till you come home and I get to see that beautiful smile again. You know I’m always here for you baby.’
