The greatest gymnast of all time, Simone Biles, has withdrawn from team competition at the Tokyo Games, according to officials.

Biles struggled in her vault early Tuesday morning (evening in Tokyo) and nearly fell to her knees, according to reports. Biles apparently left the floor and was watched by trainers. But not long after, it was announced that she would not participate for the rest of the evening.

After a rough start to her Olympics, Biles took to Instagram to describe the pressure she feels at these Games proverb,it wasn’t an easy day or my best, but i got through it. I really feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders sometimes. I know I’m brushing it off and it seems like pressure doesn’t affect me, but damn sometimes it’s hard hahaha! The Olympics are no joke! BUT I’m glad my family could be with me virtually🤍 they mean the world to me!”

It’s unclear whether or not Biles will be able to participate in the all-around or individual device events.

This is a breaking story. Come back for updates.
