Simone Biles has won bronze in the women’s balance beam final after pulling out of other events at the Tokyo Olympics, citing mental health issues.
The star gymnast received a score of 14.000, which placed her behind Chinese gymnasts Tang Xijing and Guan Chenchen. It was the seventh Olympic medal for Biles, tying her with Shannon Miller for the most ever for an American gymnast.
Widely considered the world’s best gymnast, Biles, 24, moved smoothly and precisely through her routine barely wobbling, and smiled broadly as she landed on the mat when it concluded. She waved and blew a kiss at photographers and the crowd, and hugged teammates and competitors alike.
Biles now ties the record for the most Olympic medals won by a U.S. gymnast, Team USA tweeted shortly after she bagged the bronze. She scored 14.000.
