TOKYO—Simone Biles will not defend her Olympic floor exercise title, her sports federation said on Sunday.Biles has said she is suffering from a disorienting condition that prevents her from competing safely, or effectively., and then pulled out of the individual all-around final before it began, followed by the uneven bars and vault finals.
She had previouslyposted a series of details, including a video, showing her attempts to overcome the problem in practice, and saying she was making decisions day by day.But she had noted that it was particularly acute on the vault and the floor exercise, leaving it highly unlikely that she would be able to appear in either final.

I would say this little drop out will never play again.... Just let it end... Should have figured this out sooner and gave the opportunity to another gymnast to go to the Olympics… She has already proven that she's the GOAT. What's left to prove? Doesn't matter. We love and respect Simone_Biles regardless of what she does or doesn't do. She's earned it.
