The 24 years old four-time Olympic champion withdrew from Monday’s floor final at the Tokyo Olympics. But it isn’t clear yet if she will compete in the beam final on Tuesday.
Recall that the American Gymnast had previously withdrawn from the women’s team final and individual all-round final in order to focus on her mental health.
Simone’s withdrawal gives way for Great Britain’s Jennifer Gadirova to enter the floor final being first reserve.
All the best to Simone.
