US Gymnastics superstar, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the individual all-around event and will not be able to defend her Olympic title. z The four-time gold medal winner and current champion made the decision not to compete in Thursday’s finals after consulting with Team US officials following her dismal withdrawal from the team competition on Tuesday July 27. Biles removed herself from the team final following one rotation, citing her mental health struggles as the reason for her shock exit. She also stated that she wanted to prioritize her own ‘wellbeing’ while insisting ‘there is more to life than just gymnastics’.    ‘It is very unfortunate that it has to happen at this stage because I definitely wanted this Olympics to go a little bit better but again, we’ll take it one day at a time and we’re going to see how the rest goes,’ Biles told reporters. On Wednesday, USA Gymnastics issued a statement that the 24-year-old is now opting to not compete in the individual all-around event. In a statement, USA Gymnastics said: “After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition. “We wholeheartedly support Simone’s decision and applaud her bravery in prioritising her wellbeing. Her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many.” Jade Carey, who finished ninth in qualifying, will take Biles’ place in the all-around.  The post USGymnast,Simone Biles withdraws from the individual all-around competition at the Tokyo Olympics to ‘focus on her mental health’ appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

  1. Hello there! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my good old room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to produce
    a really good article? but what can I say? I hesitate a lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

  3. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any recommendations for rookie blog writers?

    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  4. I do not even know how I finished up here, but I assumed this
    put up was great. I do not recognize who you’re but certainly you’re going to
    a well-known blogger when you are not already. Cheers!
