‘We did it’ IOC’s Bach declares as Olympic Games close

TOKYO—As athletes and media climbed off buses outside the Olympic Stadium for the opening ceremony two weeks ago, they were greeted by a young boy, maybe 4, standing with his parents. “Hi, how are you?” he said with a wide smile. “Hi, how are you?” He would prove a tough act to follow.

Can the Olympics Change How We Think About Mental Health?

In the opening minutes of the Olympic women’s gymnastics team final, American Simone Biles planned to do one of the world’s most difficult vaults, requiring her to twist her body two-and-a-half times in midair. But as soon as her body launched from the vaulting horse, it was clear something was wrong. Instead of twisting like usual, Biles hung directionless in the air, a passenger on a high-speed ride she no longer controlled. She landed—and then numbly stepped off the runway. Watching Biles’...

Simone Biles' gave us a big surprise

It bothers Simone Biles that the Olympic bronze medal she won on the balance beam in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 is forgotten. Biles, a five-time Olympic gymnastics medalist and the reigning world champion on beam, has called that bronze her favorite, a source of pride, a memento of a scrappy performance in which she chose to grip the beam with two hands to prevent a fall after her left foot slipped on the landing of a front tuck.
