What they're saying: "We are so excited to confirm that you will see two U.S. athletes in the balance beam final tomorrow — Suni Lee AND Simone Biles!! Can’t wait to watch you both!" USA Gymnastics tweeted.
The big picture: The 24-year-old four-time Olympic gold medalist withdrew from last week's Tokyo Games women's gymnastics team finals and the individual all-around finals and on Sunday morning, USA Gymnastics announced she would not be competing in the final floor exercise event.
"[T]he outpouring love & support I’ve received has made me realize I’m more than my accomplishments and gymnastics which I never truly believed before," Biles said.
