Olympic Games 2021: The Top Five Stars in Tokyo – Olympics – Sports

There is no better place than the Olympics to win, enforce the law and be called the best, and here few athletes come to establish themselves as the best in the world.

It will be games where idols are scarce, after Usain Bolt (athletics) and Michael Phelps (swimming) withdrew, but that’s not a hindrance to having a show. Tokyo will be key to the dedication of some and the birth of the other athletes the world will set its eyes on.

Biles said Tokyo would be his last game, although in the gymnastics world they say it will depend on what happens in that city. He was born on the 14th of March 1997 in Columbus, Ohio (USA).

To the already known data related to her childhood, we must add, according to her confession, the sexual abuse that the doctor of the American team Larry Nassar was subjected to for years, and her life imprisonment.

“I am also one of the many survivors of sexual assault by Larry Nassar,” Biles wrote on her Twitter account. “I have to constantly go back to the same training center where I was abused. Most of you know me to be a happy, giggling, lively girl. But lately I’ve been feeling broken, and the more I try to shut the voice in my head, the louder the screaming. I’m no longer afraid to tell my story.”

In Rio de Janeiro she won the gold in the team final and in the singles she was the best in the overall singles, jump and floor, while she won the bronze medal in the crossbar.

The main contenders for gold for Djokovic must be one of the top 20 members present in Tokyo (Medvedev, Tsitsipas, Zverev, Rublev, Karino, Hurkacz, Schwartzman, Auger-Aliassime and Monfils), although we must not lose sight of the two former members in the top ten. The first: Britain’s Andy Murray, Olympic champion in 2012 and 2016 but has since been hampered by injuries, and veteran Kei Ni Chikori, who will want to make his mark on his home soil.

“I know there are many things at stake here, this history may be at stake, and I feel privileged to finally have a role. I worked hard for it (…), but there is still a long way to go,” said the Serb.

“I don’t want to compare myself to anyone or spend energy and time thinking about what might or might not happen,” he replied when asked about the possibility of becoming the greatest tennis player ever.

“I just got better. If you work hard and don’t put mental limits on yourself, you can achieve great things. I try not to put barriers on myself because I know I can achieve great things and do things that people don’t think are possible. I try to fly higher one day,” a Tokyo figure said. After a day, it will be easier.”
