BREAKING: Simone Biles withdraws again, this time from 2 individual event finals

USA Gymnastics announced Friday “After further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars.”

“She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam,” the statement continues.

“We remain in awe of Simone, who continues to handle this situation with courage and grace, and all of the athletes who have stepped up during these unexpected circumstances,” the statement adds.

“For anyone saying I quit, I didn’t quit,” Biles wrote in an Instagram post.  “My mind and body are simply not in sync … I don’t think you realize how dangerous this is on [a] hard competition surface.

“I chose not to continue team competition [so not to jeopardize] losing a medal (of any color) for the girls/US,” she added. “Also for my own safety and health.”
