Simone Biles to compete on balance beam


(TOKYO) — US gymnast Simone Biles will compete on the balance beam on Tuesday, USA Gymnastics announced in a tweet. 

Biles pulled out of the team all-around final, the individual all-around final, the uneven bars, and the vault in the past week citing her mental health. 

Biles and Sunisa Lee, the individual all-around gold medalist, will compete for the United States. 

Biles won the bronze medal on the beam during the 2016 Rio Olympics and is a four-time world champion.
