The Tokyo Olympics has been rocked by the news that top gymnast Simone Biles has pulled out of the final in the team gymnastics competition.
Biles is one of the most famous and highly decorated athletes in the entire world.
“U.S. star Simone Biles, the greatest gymnast of all time, suddenly pulled out of competition after the first rotation of the four-event team final at the Tokyo Olympics. ‘Simone has withdrawn from the team final competition due to a medical issue,’ USA Gymnastics said in a statement to NPR. ‘She will be assessed daily to determine medical clearance for future competitions’,” NPR reported.
Other reporting has indicated that Biles withdrawal is due to a mental issue.
The multiple medal winner has been the focus of intense international attention since rising to prominence at the Olympics in 2016.
