According to NBC News, Biles exited the competition a week ago for mental health reasons.
Via Instagram last week, the athlete explained:
"For anyone saying I quit, I didn't quit, my mind and body are simply not in sync as you can see here. I don't think you realize how dangerous this is on hard/competition surface. Nor do I have to explain why I put health first. Physical health is mental health."Biles received an outpouring of love and support from fellow athletes, celebrities, and fellow teammates following her
As of now, the United States has earned 73 total medals in the Tokyo Olympics.
