News, the 20-year-old member of the U.S. women’s national gymnastics team is a guest on Facebook Watch’s talk show Taraji offers peace of mind on Monday, Nov. 8. During the visit, Jordan told co-hosts Taraji P. HensonAnd Tracie Jade about finding out that she would step in for Simone Biles after the superstar withdrew midway through the gymnastics team final in July. 

“There was a lot,”Jordan spoke candidly about the mindset she had when she replaced her friend on the uneven bars or balance beam. “There was emotions, there was excitement, there was frustration, there was devastation.”

The athlete went on to say she didn’t appreciate how the media “perceived” Simone’s decision to take a break from competition amid her mental health struggles. Jordan and her teammates earned a silver medal in the team final, and Simone sat out all subsequent competition until her return for the balance beam final, earning bronze.
