American gymnast Simone Biles wins bronze on day 11 of the Olympics but had to pull out from the competition to focus on her mental health. Last July 27, Tuesday, Biles announced her withdrawal; however, it is unclear if she would be seen again in future events. She made her decision during the women’s team final where she left the arena after doing only one vault. She then returns to support her teammates after suffering from “twisties,” a situation where gymnasts lose their bearings and cannot control how much they twist or how they will land. Eventually, Biles pulled out from the all-around, vault, floor, and uneven bars.

Biles had 14.000 points whereas China won the gold and silver with 14.633 (Guan Chenchen) and 14.233 (Tang Xijing) points, respectively. On August 4, Wednesday, the American gymnast revealed that her aunt passed away two days before 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.” Currently, Biles is tied with Shannon Miller as the most celebrated U.S. Olympic gymnast with seven medals.
