Simone Biles Withdraws From The Olympics: As soon as Simone Biles realized there is a problem, she quickly responded with quitting from the competition and let her team mates move forward.
Despite feeling the weight of the world on her shoulders, Biles missed a vault and realised she wasn’t feeling like herself.
“I’m sorry, I can’t help it. Bibiles was heard assuring her colleagues after stepping off the mat, “I love you guys, but you’re going to be OK”. Your entire life’s worth of training has prepared you for this moment. It’s OK. I’ve gone to the Olympics, so I’ll be OK, says the athlete. OK, this is your first time to kick a–, so go ahead and do it.

In the aftermath of her tumble, there was worry that Biles was injured. But Biles told NBC’s Today that she was OK.
In terms of her physical health, she said, “I feel great, and I’m in good shape.” When it comes to emotions, it depends on the time and situation. Being the head star at the Olympics isn’t an easy task, so we’re simply taking it one day at a time.
A gymnast, and especially Simone Biles, who is unable to find a comfortable landing spot while rotating so high in the air could suffer a serious injury.
“I made the decision to defend not only myself, but also my teammates,” Biles said in a statement after the incident.
In any of the other events, Biles said, she didn’t want to second guess herself. And so he took a step back and let the females perform their jobs.
