“And I’ve done some courageous things outside of this sport as well and I’m not a quitter and it took all of that realizing to see that, because ... if this situation didn’t happen I don’t think I would have ever seen it that way.

“It ended on a high, so [I am] very grateful, thankful for that,” Biles continued.
“But I still feel like we go back home and there’s still a lot of things I need to work on internally and mentally to kind of feel like I had success here.”
