Whether it is for the good, the bad, or downright shocking, 2021 was full of memorable moments.
Now, as the year draws to a close, That Grape Juice is reflecting on the occasions that rocked – and to some degree even reshaped – the Urban and Pop culture landscape as we know it.
Next we are celebrating the comeback glory of Simone Biles at the Olympics.
Join us below…
It all started when she suddenly pulled out of the women’s team final. As for what happened, a “medical issue” was originally cited as the cause of the incident.
Shortly after her exit, she revealed the reason as to why she decided to leave the competition. She went on to say: “I have to focus on my mental health.”
Against the odds, she announced her return and that she would participate in the balance beam final.
Biles then went on to win the bronze medal in the competition, only being bested by China’s Guan Chenchen and Tang Xijing.
All-in-all, Biles went home with two medals. One was silver and was for the team final and the other for a bronze for the balance beam. She also went on to be named Time Magazine‘s Athlete of the Year.
