Update (August 3, 2021): Simone Biles finished her 2020 Tokyo Olympics run on Tuesday and, as expected, she did not disappoint. After choosing to focus on her mental health, the 24-year-old gymnast returned to the competition and won the bronze medal in the balance beam individual final, ESPN reported.

The gymnast scored a 14.000, falling behind China’s competitors, Chenchen Guan who scored a 14.633 and Xijing Tang who scored 14.233.

Biles said she didn’t anticipate that she’d place in the top three during the competition.

"I was just trying to hit one more beam set. To have one more opportunity to compete at the Olympics meant the world to me,” Biles said.

The win marked her seventh Olympic medal. 

It's also the second time Biles earned a bronze medal in the balance beam competition at the Olympics. In 2016, during the Rio de Janeiro games, Biles was awarded bronze after she almost slipped off the beam during her routine, The Associated Press reported.

This victory comes more than a week after the gymnast withdrew from the team final after experiencing the “twisties,” as Blavity previously reported

She said it wasn’t an easy decision to withdraw from the finals, but the four-time Olympic gold medalist said she’s happy she did it.

"People just thought it was easy, but I physically and mentally was not in the right headspace, and I didn't want to jeopardize my health and my safety because at the end of the day, it's not worth it,” Biles said.

"My mental and physical health is above all medals that I could ever win," she continued. "So to be clear, to do beam, which I didn't think I was going to be, just meant the world to be back out there. And I wasn't expecting to walk away with the medal. I was just going out there doing this for me."

With this latest win, Biles has tied with gymnast Shannon Miller for being awarded the most Olympic medals in gymnastics.
