Simone Biles, the greatest gymnast ever, arrived in Tokyo under pressure to amplify her exploits. By deciding to stay out of at least two competitions to take care of herself and regain her self-confidence, she has opened up a planetary debate that is not limited to sports. In this episode, Renata Le Pretty has two guests: Marcos Ochoa and Vera Iaconelli. A Globo reporter who has covered the Olympics for more than three decades began to explain The Bayles Phenomenon: “What You Do, No One Can Do”. Describes the stress that high-performance athletes experience from an early age, especially in gymnastics. “There is deformity in childhood and adolescence,” he says.. Vera, Ph.D. in psychology from the University of the South Pacific and director of the Gérard de Psychoanalytic Institute, analyzes Bayles’ case from the perspective of “relationship to our desires.” She questions the characterization of the hero’s gesture as a “problem”, and ponders: “Mental health is the ability to say no to certain things that are not acceptable. And not madly try to fit in with them.”.

A podcast is like a radio show, but it’s not: instead of allocating a specific time to broadcast, it can be listened to anytime and anywhere you want. Instead of tuning into a radio station, we find it on the Internet. Free.
You can listen on a website, on a music platform or on a podcast app just on your cell phone, so you can listen whenever you want: in traffic, doing the dishes, at the beach, at the gym…
A podcast can be a topic, tell a unique story, have discussions or just have conversations on a wide range of topics. You can listen to individual episodes or subscribe to a podcast – for free – so you’ll be notified when a new episode is published.
