3:16 pm
they worked way too hard for that teammate grace mccallum weighed in on biles decision. it's really hard to lose the best in the world and we definitely feel a little more but i'm really proud of how we did. and i think we did. >> amazing. they really fought the u.s. women's gymnastics team did go on to take the silver medal. as for whether or not biles plans to compete in the individual all around competition. we're going to take it a day at a know tomorrow that we have a half day or at least the morning off. so it will be a good mental rest. and so we'll take it from there. >> so that's the $64,000 question right now. will simone biles compete in the individual all around. she is the olympic champion from 2016 trying to become the first woman to repeat as olympic champion since 1968 sue moss. >> andrew, thank you so much for that report. >> young athletes often feel pressured and maybe even fearful to be watched so closely in some have started to speak out and share their

3:18 pm
talk all around you. you know, whether it's your parents are teammates or coaches or friends and i you know, i can relate so well because, you know, once you're national champion or world champion. you know, the expectation is is to repeat. and when i was at the university of utah. we worked with a sports psychologist every year in the only reason i believe and i've talked, you know, with teammates for years about the pressure. the only reason we could deal with the pressure was because we didn't focus on results. and i think that that's one thing that we do as parents and coaches is that we tend to talk about or focus on the result. how good that was and is that going to score high enough. and are you going to go to the next level and and so we need to kind of pull back and really value where they're at right now who they are as a person, how to give them some calming strategies and really think about just
3:19 pm
present moment and not the results. >> absolutely. no to successful athlete or an athlete, you know, at at all you do have to have somewhat of a competitive nature. is it hard to have to dial it back for the sake of your mental health is that drive to win difficult to put aside. >> a pullback or or something for your mental health. i don't i don't believe that. that's how i woodward or even think about it. it's always a balance. it is always a balance. so training hard being driven vehicle oriented is fantastic. you don't need to draw that or pull it in. it's just knowing when you feel this is about self-awareness and emotional awareness. and this is what i write about in my books. is how to start. see that. i'm nervous. what are the signs of
3:20 pm
being nervous. hey, do i have butterflies? are my hands or feet getting sweaty and my getting shaky. i started my thoughts are racing. all these things and naomi osaka vials, whatever they were feeling. they knew it's something was not in ballots. and so the pressure and the pressure in the push and push can be so much. and the expectations, then they stay push it down. push it down until all of a sudden it's too much. we can train actually guide athletes to success and be mentally healthy. it's not one or the other. it's i mean, that is you that that is a very, very good way of putting it. i didn't necessarily mean that it should be one or the other. but i can imagine that being an athlete in wanting to win. >> you know, got to be difficult to to have to deal with something like that.
3:21 pm
>> where do you draw the i'm not an athlete. but you know where if an athlete is feeling those nerves that anxiety. how do you know whether it's detrimental a mental health issue or just nerves. and and just normal for, you know, before going out on the field are going out on to the court or, you know, whatever it is that you do as an athlete. >> thank you. son so what it is when you see a pattern. all right. if it's just nerves every once in a you know, that's normal. if the if it goes over to, you know, whether you know, some gym this will actually going throw up. and you know, they they can't concentrate their shaking. and there may be breaking down in tears. you're seeing more like extreme type reactions to the stress. and when you see a pattern of that, then something is really wrong. so you want to start to notice that the beginning of
3:22 pm
when your thoughts start to spin, when your heart is racing and learning in advance of any extreme pressure like this should be part of the regular. >> thing in >> learning to manage that and feeling your muscles, relax and knowing what a peaceful feeling is really light. and knowing that you are valuable no matter what because what we keep doing is we keep stuffing it down and pushing it. and so the extreme is when you see a pattern of it happening over and over or your triggered by a person, whether it's a coach or somebody and you see that pattern that there triggered by that situation. that's when your knowing that this is a mental health issue rather than, you know, just regular nerves and stuff and maybe they do start to get depressed. maybe they start to isolate themselves. maybe they start to have no motivation
3:23 pm
whatsoever over a period of time. so you can see the signs and i'm certified and mental health first aid and this is a wonderful, wonderful program for coaches in every sport to be able to notice the signs so that we can help guide them towards balancing out. >> well, obviously we never want anyone to feel like this. but it is very that athletes like simone and naomi are using their platform to the discussion surrounding mental health and athletes because a lot of times you may associate an athlete, especially a gold medalist with that kind of a personal issue. so it is nice that they're shedding light on it. so we really appreciate you taking the time out to speak with us about such an important issue. thank so much for joining us today. >> thank you. thanks, everybody. >> still ahead at 3.45 a reckless driver is recovering today the wild ride that smashed cars and what neighbors are saying about what they saw. and after the
