After taking a mental health break, Simone Biles will return to compete in the beam final at the Tokyo Olympics.
USA Gymnastics confirmed the news via Twitter on Monday.
The tweet read:
We are so excited to confirm that you will see two U.S. athletes in the balance beam final tomorrow – Suni Lee AND Simone Biles!! Can’t wait to watch you both!
See the tweet below:
Simone shocked the world when she made the decision to withdraw from the all-around competition and three event finals to care for herself and her mental health.
In a series of posts on her Instagram Story, Simone revealed she was experiencing the “twisties.”
It’s a phenomenon, in which gymnasts feel like they get lost in the air.
Simone said her “mind and body are simply not in sync.”
