Simone Biles’ dramatic exit sparks furious debate on social media as critics claim she ‘abandoned’ teammates
Daily Mail says Simone Biles stunned the world once again on Wednesday when she withdrew from the individual all-round gymnastics final at the Tokyo Olympics to focus on her mental health – just 24 hours after pulling out of the team event.
The 24-year-old athlete dropped out of the team competition in Tokyo yesterday after flubbing her vault, her first event of the day. Her surprise exit cleared the way for Russia to claim the gold in a dramatic upset that saw Team USA come in second place for the first time in over a decade.
On Wednesday it was announced the four-time gold medal winner would not compete in Thursday night’s individual all-round final.
