Simone Biles showed up and did her thing for the final day of events in Tokyo earning herself a Bronze medal for her performance.
According to ESPN The 24-year-old, who withdrew from the women’s team final and other individual events to focus on her mental health upon experiencing the “twisties,” earned a bronze medal on the balance beam with a strong performance and a score of 14.000.
Biles also earned a bronze medal in beam at the 2016 Rio Games.
With the newest addition to her hardware collection, she ties Shannon Miller as the most decorated Olympian in American gymnastics history.
While each gymnast has seven medals to her name, Biles has more golds (4) than Miller (2).
All-around gold medalist Suni Lee also competed on beam, finishing in fifth place with a score of 13.866.
Simone Biles is a bronze medalist again, after matching her result in the balance beam final from Rio.
With this, her seventh Olympic medal, Biles becomes the most accomplished American Olympic gymnast in history.
She ties Magnificent Seven gymnast Shannon Miller with seven medals – the most by any American – but Biles’ four golds is unmatched.
The story of the night, though, was not what color medal Biles earned, but the fact that after a week no one could have predicted, she returned to competition under the greatest of pressure and scrutiny and showed why she is the sport’s greatest star.
Biles shared with the press that she had to be medically cleared to do the competition and was determined to show the world that she was not a quitter.
