Simone Biles takes the Bronze in Olympic Beam Finals
This is the second Bronze beam medal for the Olympian
TOKYO (KLKN) – Simone Biles was back in action on the Olympic stage, taking third place in the beams finals. She finished behind two Chinese gymnasts.
This is the second time that Biles placed in third on beam at an Olympics. She also took the Bronze in beam event finals in Rio.
Simone Biles now has 7 Olympic medals under her belt, 5 from Rio and 2 from Tokyo.
Her performance came after she removed herself from several of the finals competitions, citing health concerns of being unable to do the challenging moves in a phenomenon known in the gymnastics world as “The Twisties”.
After her performance, she was seen giving long hugs and smiling ear to ear, with her teammates cheering her on.
