Simone Biles Olympic results

So far, Biles has only competed in one event at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. She vaulted once during the team competition before withdrawing due to a case of the twisties, a mental issue that prevented her from knowing up from down while airborne. She earned a silver medal for her team’s efforts.

Biles had qualified for the all-around final and the three other event finals on the vault, uneven bars and floor exercises. However, she didn’t participate in any of the individual finals. Still, Team USA saw one of its gymnasts medal in each of the events.
