Simone Biles will compete in balance beam final on Tuesday
TOKYO / AP — Simone Biles will compete at the 2020 Olympics on the balance beam.
The announcement was made early Monday morning. Biles had been dealing with a mental block referred to as “the twisties.” That makes it hard for her to figure out where her body is while she’s in the air, putting Biles at risk of serious injury.
Biles initially pulled out of the team gymnastics final on Tuesday, July 27.
During the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Biles took home a bronze medal for her performance on the balance beam.
Alongside Biles, teammate Suni Lee will also be competing in the beam final. Lee won Olympic gold in the women’s gymnastics all-around final last week and bronze on the uneven bars on Sunday.
Watch Biles and Lee compete on NBC2 tomorrow, August 3, at 8 a.m. ET.
