The US artistic gymnastics team has suffered a major setback in the Tokyo Olympics 2020. The team's biggest player and four-time Olympic champion Simone Biles was eliminated before the final match of the team event. Simone, one of the greats of artistic gymnastics, was injured and missed the final.



The US women's team could not win a third consecutive gold because of Biles' exit. After Biles' withdrawal, the Russian team won the gold medal in this event. In fact, before the final match at the Ariake Gymnastics Center on Tuesday, Biles was practicing and appeared unwell while doing the twist. After this, she left the field with her coach and did not return. His exit was later confirmed by American Gymnastics.


Talking about Biles's achievements, she is the only woman in her list of records to win five World All-Around titles. He has 30 world and Olympic medals, including 19 world titles and four Olympic golds.
