She showed an incredible level of bravery admitting that she had a problem so major that she needed to stop performing immediately. Just being able to persuade the coaches and trainers of the US Olympic Team of what she needed to do must have taken the heart of a lion.

As an example of what she goes through here’s a video of some of the rules all Gymnasts must follow.
