It’s official: Simone Biles, after retiring during the team final on Tuesday, renounces the individual general competition scheduled for tomorrow. This was announced by the US gymnastics federation which, yesterday, underlined with a statement: “We support Simone in his decision and applaud his courage in putting health first”.
At the base of the choice a psychological question: Simone could not withstand the pressure. The goal of the possible five golds thus fades definitively. Indeed, now we will have to understand if we see it again on the Tokyo Olympic platform. The program for her would include the final on vaulting and asymmetrical bars on Sunday, on Monday for the free body and on Tuesday for the beam.
