Simone Biles will not make any immediate decisions about any further participation in these Olympics after she withdrew from the women’s team final mid-competition at the Tokyo Games on Tuesday, citing mental health concerns.
“We’re going to see about Thursday, we’ll take it a day at a time,” said Biles of her prospects of lining up in the individual all-around final. “I know tomorrow [Wednesday] we have a bit of a break from training so that’ll be really nice, to have a mental rest day.”
