Priyanka Chopra extends support to American gymnast Simone Biles

The `Fashion` star Priyanka Chopra Jonas shared one of the clips from an old interview of her YouTube show `If I Could Tell You Just One Thing`, with the US gymnast Simone Biles on social media, and the video is taking over the internet. Speaking about the video, the actress was seen in a tete-a-tete with one of the most celebrated gymnasts Simone about her career.

In the clip, Priyanka could be heard asking the 24-year-old athlete about the pressure she feels in her field, to which Simone replied, “I feel like that`s the hardest part of my career. I don`t want to say job, because I chose this. Always meeting people`s needs, every single day, all the time, is probably the hardest thing that I go through.”

Sharing the video clip on her Instagram handle, Priyanka wrote a lengthy note in the caption. Take a look.

The `Dostana` actor further asked Simone, “When you fail, does it crush you?” Simone quipped, “Yes. I feel like if I don`t meet their needs and if I failed… even at the Olympics, everybody wanted me to win six golds or this or that… I didn`t meet those needs and I was really down on myself, especially after the beam. Even though I still medalled, everyone was like `What the heck is a bronze,`” Simone replied referring to the 2016 Rio Olympics where she won four gold medals and a bronze- on the balance beam.

“Therapy needs to be normalised, it is everything. I feel like nowadays if you say you are going to therapy, nobody questions you anymore. But before if I said I was going to therapy, (people would say) `Are you going to a cuckoo doctor?` And that`s why I think therapy today is so important and it needs to be normalized,” Simone concluded.

Earlier, Bollywood stars heaped praises who pulled out of the women`s team event on Thursday after faltering mid-air on the first apparatus- the vault, which is her speciality. Team USA continued without her and won silver. After a medical assessment, Simone also withdrew from the individual all-around event. Last week, Simone had become the first Olympic athlete to have her own customized hashtag emoji on Twitter.
