TOKYO: Simone Biles withdrew from the vault and uneven bar apparatus finals as the US gymnast continued to wrestle with mental health issues.
Biles had earlier stunned the Tokyo Games when she dropped out of the team competition following a poor opening vault and then decided not to defend her all-around crown.
The 24-year-old, however, might yet make another appearance at the Tokyo Games having not ruled herself out for floor exercise tomorrow and beam on Tuesday.
“Today, after further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars,” said USA Gymnastics. “She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam.” — Reuters
