Simone Biles: A mental health champion. With a twist.

This week, American superstar (and borderline superhuman) gymnast, Simone Biles, withdrew from the team and individual finals in the midst of Olympic competition (which I still don’t think should be happening in Tokyo right now) after experiencing a bout of “the twisties” and deciding, for the sake of her own mental health and safety, to not continue. Then, social media went nuts.

"...I can’t imagine what it’s like for an athlete to participate in the Olympics."





About Steve Patterson

Best known to hundreds of thousands of comedy fans as the host of The Debaters on CBC Radio One/CBC podcasts since 2007 and The Debaters Live, which has delighted corporate and sold-out theatre audiences nationwide since 2012, there is no debate that Steve Patterson is North America’s funniest and least moderate debate moderator. As a solo comedian, he’s not too shabby either. With over two decades of headlining experience all across Canada and all around the world, Patterson packs a well-traveled, well-honed delivery with relentless research to create one of a kind and up to the moment shows wherever he performs.

We can’t all blast into space. But we can all do better on Earth.

The “2020” Tokyo Olympics: United By Emotion. Doomed by Reality.

“…Bezos couldn’t be further out of touch with the people of Earth…”
“…it was daunting to see a whole bunch of people walking around an indoor space…”
“I’m not saying it’s not the same as previous Olympic games, it’s just totally different and several times more life threatening.”
