American gymnast Simone Biles has withdrawn from the vault and uneven bars event finals at the Tokyo Olympics, USA Gymnastics said Saturday.
Earlier, the superstar withdrew from the team competition after one rotation and chose not to compete in the individual all-around, citing her mental health.
“After further consultation with medical staff” Biles withdrew from the two events and will continue to be evaluated for the balance beam and floor exercise finals, USA Gymnastics said in its statement about the bars and vault. “We remain in awe of Simone, who continues to handle this situation with courage and grace, and all of the athletes who have stepped up during these unexpected circumstances.”
Biles is one of the most celebrated gymnasts in history and was projected to win multiple gold medals in Tokyo. In 2016, she won four gold medals and one bronze at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
