Evans caught up with olympic medalist nastia lucan in tokyo before the finals and she explained why she thinks simone is the goat you know we talk about the pressure and the expectations that the whole entire world and the whole country in the nation and that pressure that she has on her shoulders but i think nobody else puts more pressure on her than herself you know she’s a perfectionist as so many athletes are but literally she you know she’s she can do the most difficult routines and the most difficult skills in the world that nobody is doing and you know she takes one step or you know step out of bounds or something and she’s not like totally disappointed but you know she’s a perfectionist so she can’t you can see it on her face you know she’s like okay i could have done that better i’ve done it better your chanco double pike that she did it she did like she did here here right so so you’re you know what you’re talking about here yeah and it was like uh-oh you just let us know that like yeah i’m not afraid to pull it out yeah and the the craziest thing is she doesn’t need to do that like you know so yeah she’s so far um ahead of you know the rest of the field but again that’s what makes her in my opinion the greatest of all time because not only is she you know the records the medals that it speaks for themselves but she pushes herself to do things that she never thought for like first of all like i i remember like listening to her say like i didn’t even think that was possible right you know when her coaches were like okay you should try this and she was like no like exactly that seems a little crazy it’s dangerous and now she’s at the olympics competing it.
