Simone Biles withdrew midway through the finals of the Tokyo Olympic women’s gymnastics team.

Four-time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles retired midway through the finals of the Tokyo Olympic Women’s Gymnastics team. After that, she said that she must “pay attention to my mental health.”

The American star left the stadium for a while after her test jump, but then returned to the court to support her teammates. The American team finally ranked behind the Russian Olympic Committee and won the silver medal.

The 24-year-old Byers scored 13.766 in the vault event-her lowest score in the Olympic vault, after which she withdrew from the competition.

“After my performance, I really don’t want to continue,” she said, “I have to pay attention to my mental health. I really feel that mental health problems are now more common in the sports field.”
