American gymnast Simone Biles wins bronze on day 11 of the Olympics but had to quit the tournament to focus on her mental health. Biles confirmed her withdrawal on Tuesday, July 27; however, it remains unknown whether she would appear in future competitions. She made her decision during the women’s team final when she only did one vault and had to leave the arena. After experiencing “twisties,” a circumstance in which gymnasts lose their bearings and are unable to control how much they twist or how they will land, she returns to support her teammates. Biles eventually drew away from the uneven bars, vault, floor, and all-around.

Biles scored 14.000 whereas China took the gold and silver with 14.633 (Guan Chenchen) and 14.233 (Tang Xijing) points, respectively. The American gymnast disclosed on Wednesday, August 4th, that her aunt died two days prior to the competition and her victory. “At the end of the day, people don’t understand what we are going through,” said Biles. “Two days ago, I woke up and my aunt unexpectedly passed, and it wasn’t any easier being here at the Olympic Games.” With seven medals, Biles is tied with Shannon Miller as the most honored American Olympic gymnast.
