The Simone Biles Olympics are not over yet. The 24-year-old American gymnast returns to the court for the first time since she withdrew from the team final due to a case of “turns.”
USA Gymnastics confirmed on Twitter that Biles would be back in action after missing the finals of the previous three events and the full final.
We are very excited to confirm that you will see two American athletes in the balance beam final tomorrow: Suni Lee AND Simone Biles! Can’t wait to see you both!

Simone Biles Olympic Results
So far, Biles has only competed in one event at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. She jumped once during the team competition before retiring due to a case of spins, a mental problem that prevented her from knowing from top to bottom while she was in the air. He earned a silver medal for his team’s efforts.
Biles had qualified for the general final and the other three finals of the event in jumping, uneven bars and floor exercises. However, she did not participate in any of the individual finals. Still, Team USA saw one of her gymnast medals at each of the events.
