Simone Biles won't compete in individual vault or uneven bars Olympic finals

Simone Biles will not compete in the individual vault or uneven bars finals at the Tokyo Olympics, USA Gymnastics announced Friday.

Why it matters: Biles drew global attention after stepping out of the individual all-around and team finals to prioritize her mental health. It's unclear if she will compete in the balance beam or floor exercise events.

What they're saying: "After further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars," USA Gymnastics said in a statement.

  • "She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam."
