    It was an Olympic moment that shocked the world. The world’s greatest gymnast withdrawing from the finals.

    Simone Biles, the tournament favorite for the gold medal, withdrew from the team finals to focus on her mental health.

    The statement read:

    “After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition at the Tokyo Olympic Games, in order to focus on her mental health. Simone will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether or not to participate in next week’s individual event finals.”

    Biles later thanked fans for the outpouring of support she received.

    “The outpouring love & support I’ve received has made me realize I’m more than my accomplishments and gymnastics which I never truly believed before.”

    Biles has since liked a tweet that explained that when a gymnast isn’t feeling right, it can have awful consequences on their health and put them in danger.
