Next Level Olympians Who Seem to Defy the Laws of Physics
Whether you're a fan of sports or not, there are unarguably few worldwide events as tense, polarizing, or emotionally charged as the Olympic Games. We see superheroes on TV, but hidden behind the scenes are years of grueling preparation. Most wouldn't be able to handle the emotional pressure and physical stress that comes with training to compete in the Olympics, and it's pretty incredible that many of these athletes manage to make it look easy. We don't have to tell anyone that it's anything but easy. When Simone Biles noped out of competition after a terrifying case of 'the twisties,' the world was forced to remind itself that these aren't superheroes. They're human beings expected to oftentimes risk their lives to perform the nearly impossible.
We've collected some incredible and humbling moments from the Tokyo Olympics for you to marvel at from the safety of your ergonomic chair.
