US gymnast Sam Mikulak has opened up about his mental health.

The three time Olympian got candid about his battle with depression in an emotional Instagram post.

"At a time when I should feel the best, I feel the worst," wrote Mikulak. "And that’s okay, because with the downs come the ups. I’ll share my journey to bouncing back"

"I've been feeling depressed. Surprise, making your 3rd Olympics doesn't grant you happiness. Don't worry I am getting help and working on it."


"What do I do now? I redefined "me time"."




"Nothing you do in life should be more important than taking care of yourself."




"It has taken a long time for me to come around to this level of awareness. It's not easy and I am still working through."


 The two time World medalist has previously said that he fell into depression when the Tokyo Olympics were postponed last year. He 
called Tokyo the most "meaningful" and the "hardest" Olympics to qualify for in his career.
