Simone then noted that the Olympics in Tokyo is far different than any of the ones that happened before, especially since there is no crowd.
“After further medical evaluation, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the final individual all-around competition,” USA Gymnastics, the national governing body for U.S. gymnastics, said in a statement.
“We wholeheartedly support Simone’s decision and applaud her bravery in prioritizing her well-being. Her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many.”

Although some people have not been so supportive of Simone’s decision, Justin Beiber isn’t one of them…
…He actually had one of the best things to say following the news of her exiting the Olympics.
“Nobody will ever understand the pressures you face! I know we don’t know each other but I’m so proud of the decision to withdraw,” Justin wrote in an Instagram post.
“It’s as simple as what does it mean to gain the whole world but forfeit your soul. Sometimes our no’s are more powerful than our yes’s.”
“When what you normally love starts to steal your joy it’s important we take a step back to evaluate why.”
“People thought I was crazy for not finishing the purpose tour but it was the best thing I could have done for my mental health!! So proud of you @simonebiles.”
