Simone Biles Will Not Compete in Signature Individual Gymnastics Event

After removing herself from Tuesday's team final, Simone Biles has withdrawn from the individual all-around gymnastics competition. Biles has said the decision is to focus on her mental health. Jade Carey will take Biles' place in the all-around. Biles could still return for the individual event finals. There has been an outpouring of support and some criticism for Biles. Her choice challenges traditional competitive values of putting winning above self-care.
