According to USA Today Simone Biles will return to fo the balance beam which is the final Gymnastic event scheduled for Tuesday night.
As previously reported Simone Biles pulled out from most of the competition due to developing a case of “The Twisties”.
“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,” spokesperson Carol Fabrizio said in a statement.
Biles is the reigning world champion on the balance beam and also won a bronze medal at the event at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. She is up third in the eight-person final.
There is undoubtedly a ton of pressure on Simone to win, reports often predicting over 5 gold medals for the Olympic legend which is a lot for one person to carry.
On Instagram, Simone shared that it is petrifying trying to skill and not having your mind and body, not in sync.
“Honestly petrifying trying to do a skill but not having your mind & body in sync. 10/10 do not recommend,” Biles wrote Friday in an Instagram post in which she explained in detail the issues she’s been having.
We are excited to see Simone perform but regardless of the result, we are so very proud of her.
