Aug. 2, 2021 4:39 am ETTOKYO—Simone Biles will compete in the balance beam final on Tuesday, her sports federation said here, making a high-stakes return to competition a week after she pulled herself out of competition because she didn’t feel mentally able to compete safely.
The 24-year-old gymnast, widely regarded as the greatest of all time, has not competed since she withdrew from the team final after a shaky vault in the team final last Tuesday. She has withdrawn from four other finals in the days since then. The balance beam final represents her last chance to come back to competition in the Tokyo Olympics, and to take an individual medal of any color.
USA Gymnastics confirmed Biles’s entry on Twitter, writing: “We are so excited to confirm that you will see two U.S. athletes in the balance beam final tomorrow – Suni Lee AND Simone Biles!!”Biles has said on social media that she is suffering from a disorienting condition that has prevented her from safely or effectively executing her skills, which are among the most difficult in the sport’s history, and posted video documenting her attempts to overcome the condition in a private gym in Tokyo in time to see out the Games. headtopics.com
Her surprise announcement now adds yet another dramatic development in the most extraordinary plot twist of the Games. It is not immediately clear what kind of performance Biles is planning to offer on beam, or the risks or rewards of doing so. Read more: The Wall Street Journal »

She doesn’t look like she has mental issues, with many interviews done on her , she sounds well , articulate and fit.. I think she just want to be sensationalized to get more attention for herself and get more attention in USA for commercial endorsements and use mental issue . Oh am I excited. Think I’ll rearrange my sock drawer during this “event”.
Good luck to Simone. I wish her all the best tomorrow. She got this. Oh wtf A lot of people are rising there but I'm pretty sure no one can do what she does. At the same token she needed to kind of wine down so she could focus. A clouded mind is very dangerous on the bars or any gymnastic sport. So yes she took a mental health break. No one gets that🤦🏿
Apparently the twisties don't effect her on the beam the way they do in the other events. God bless her Ffs the twisties aren’t mental. Pulling back from competition when you have them is a life/death necessity I pray for her. The Beam is the most difficult. This could be the greatest comeback since the Captain, Willis Reed or she could be paralyzed for life.

Simone Biles opts out of floor exercise final at OlympicsTOKYO (AP) — Simone Biles will not defend her Olympic gold medal on floor exercise. USA Gymnastics announced Sunday that the six-time Olympic medalist has opted not to compete on floor, where she won gold in Rio de Janeiro and placed second in qualifying last week. If she had quit before the Olympics she would have said no to a lot of $$$ I feel for her, but I think maybe it's time to concentrate and comment on the athletes who are there and still competing. 🤷🏽♂️
