Islam News – The star of the U.S. gymnastics team said she would compete in the balance beam final at the Tokyo Games, after she withdrew from most events because of mental health concerns.

Biles, who withdrew from the team final nearly a week ago, said it would have been dangerous to perform her complicated and daring routines because she had lost the ability to gauge where she was in the air in relation to the ground.

The gymnast, 24, is considering retirement, but she has hinted that she might return for the 2024 Games in Paris to honor her French coaches.

Details: The balance beam event on Tuesday will wrap up the women’s gymnastics competition. There will be stiff competition from Guan Chenchen and Tang Xijing of China, who ranked first and second in the qualifying round.
