After withdrawing from the team gymnastics competition,

Simone Biles made the decision not to participate in the individual general final to be played this Thursday

. The determination was reported through the social networks of Usa Gymnastics, the governing body for gymnastics at the national level in the United States. The statement ensures that the gymnast underwent an additional medical evaluation, and made the decision to prioritize her well-being. In addition, the organization was in charge of supporting the resolution of the American athlete and classifying her as a role model for her courage.

After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition.

We wholeheartedly support Simone's decision and applaud her bravery in prioritizing her well-being.

Her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many.

The Ohio native still has several Olympic commitments, as she is classified for the jump and uneven bars finals, floor gymnastics, and fixed bar balance

, to be played in the coming days.

Biles has not yet made his decision public regarding these competitions, although it is likely that the American will continue with the medical evaluations before making a determination.

“We trained this morning and everything went well.


during that 5+ hour wait for the competition, I started shaking


I could barely sleep, I simply

had never felt like this before a competition,

”the gymnast had declared at a press conference, after withdrawing from the team gymnastics competition.

The American reappeared during this day, as she was present at the Ariake Gymnastics Center, supporting her teammates Samuel Mikulak and Brody Malone, members of the United States men's gymnastics team.

In the last hours, Simone shared a publication through her social networks.

It corresponds to the gymnast Andrea Orris, and it is a statement detailing the reasons to support Biles' decision.

Simone Biles and her tour in Tokyo 2020

The determination of the young gymnast comes on par with her sixth competition in this Olympic event, since Biles had started his way in Tokyo 2020 on July 25, when he achieved first place in the qualifiers for the gymnastics final in I usually.

After this, he had to participate in another 5 competitions in just two days, something that although the preparation of the athletes does not correspond to a physical fatigue that is too important, it can generate a remarkable mental fatigue.

The problems for the North American came with the team competition:

after the Olympic jump test, things began to go wrong for her


Biles made a failed jump, which after not complying with the announced routine and an irregular fall, cost him one of the worst scores of his career.

After the jump, Simone gave up her spot and withdrew from the competition.

If she continues in the competition,

Simone Biles will have to appear next Sunday in the jumping final

, an instance to which she agreed after a resounding first place in the preliminary rounds.

We still have to wait for the confirmation, which will surely take place through the social networks of the American gymnastics body, to know if the gymnast will be able to compete again in these Olympic games in Tokyo 2020.
