However, the American Gymnastics Association announced on Wednesday thatThe gymnast also misses the complex individual competition, saying he needs to focus on his mental health now. This is because it can start with one of the odd numbers.
The U.S. gymnastics team won a silver on Tuesday, and Biles won a sixth Olympic medal. After the race, Biles said:
After our race, I didn’t want to continue. I need to focus on my mental health. I think mental health is the most important thing in sports right now. We need to protect our minds and bodies and not just go out and do what the world wants
The athlete’s decision was supported by many, including gymnast Caitlin Ohashi and five-time British gymnast Max Anthony Whitlock.
