By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “We are so excited that you will see two U.S. athletes in the balance bean final tomorrow – Suni Lee AND Simone Biles!! Can’t wait to watch you both!” tweeted USA Gymnastics on Monday, August 2.
Jade Carey won gold for the US on the floor exercise while Mikayla Skinnner won silver in the vault and Suni Lee bronze in the uneven bars.
Vanessa Ferrari from Italy won silver and Mai Murakami from Japan secured bronze in the floor exercise.
Brazil’s Rebecca Andrade took gold in the vault and Seojeong Yeo from South Korea won bronze.
In the uneven bars, the gold medal winner was Nina Derwael from Belgium. Anastasiia Iliankova of the Russian Olympic Committee won silver.
Biles pulled out of the team competition last week Tuesday after falling short in the vault competition.
“I didn’t know where I was in the air,” Biles said later.
Biles that she was having what gymnasts call “the twisties,” a mental block condition where they lose awareness of their exact position while up in mid-air.
Biles, reportedly had been under severe duress leading up to the Olympics where she was expected to win five gold medals.
The United States was still able to win the silver medal in the team competition.
Biles later also withdrew from the all-around, vault, uneven bars, and floor exercise competitions.
She has since received a lot of support for her decision to withdraw and the subject of mental health has been pushed to the forefront.
