Simone Biles Makes Her Olympics Comeback – Ready To Compete In Balance Beam Final
Simone Biles, who is considered to be one of the greatest gymnasts of all time, participated in the gymnastics qualifications round on July 25th and in the vault rotation in the women’s team final on July 27th before she withdrew from the competitions. She won a silver medal as part of the US team’s second place finish in the team final.
Simone went on to say that she was struggling with the “twisties,” which is a mental block where gymnasts lose track of their position midair.
“I didn’t have a bad performance & quit. I’ve had plenty of bad performances throughout my career and finished the competition,” she wrote after the women’s team final. “I simply got so lost my safety was at risk as well as a team medal. Therefore the girls stepped up and killed the rest of the competition & won silver. QUEENS!!!! Hence why we have 4 team members [because] ALLLLL of us can compete in team meet. Not just me.”
Simone Biles won four golds in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
