“I was there for her, I supported her. I did try to tell her, ‘Look, you know how to do everything and this is you. This is your moment. It’s all up to you,’” Jordan said.

“I really can’t say a lot because she has to tell her own story, but all I know is I’m going to support her no matter what. I am her teammate. I’m her best friend.”

“She is my ride or die. I will forever be by her side,” she added.

I honestly can tell you that she knows who she is, so when she goes out there, she’s already done this before, she’s already been an Olympian multiple times. I mean, she’s the GOAT for the reason. When she knows what she has to do, she will take herself into that spot of, ‘OK, look I don’t want to harm anybody.’”

“We all understood what she was going through. We all understood everything that was happening. We just support her,” she continued.

“She’s Simone for a reason, and if she puts her mind to something…She’s not a quitter. You will never see Simone just go out there and not do what she knows she could do.”

There’s an update regarding Simone‘s participation in the Olympics overall.
