After further evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the Olympic Uneven Bars and Vault Finals. The Olympics said in a statement, “Simone has withdrawn from the event final for floor and will make a decision on beam later this week. Either way, we’re all behind you, Simone.” They added, “MyKayla Skinner, who had the fourth-highest score in vault during qualifications, will compete in vault finals for the U.S. alongside Jade Carey, who finished with the second-highest score.”
Simone is the greatest gymnast ever, she knows what’s right for her body.
