FILE – In this July 27, 2021 file photo, Simone Biles, of the United States, watches gymnasts perform after she exited the team final at the 2020 Summer Olympics, in Tokyo. Biles and Naomi Osaka are prominent young Black women under the pressure of a global Olympic spotlight that few human beings ever face. But being a young Black woman — which, in American life, comes with its own built-in pressure to perform — entails much more than meets the eye. (AP Photo/Ashley Landis, File)

Mike Tirico speaks to the broadcasting preparation required when “you can’t prepare for the entirety of the Olympics,” previews a sit-down interview with Simone Biles, and lauds the contributions of Michael Phelps.
