Simone Biles

After bowing out to focus on her mental health, gymnast Simone Biles returned to compete.


Today is the final day for gymnastic events, and after competing in the individual balance beam final, Biles earned a Bronze medal.

According to ABC News, the olympian scored a 14.00 putting her in third place behind Team China competitors Guan Chenchen and Tang Xijing.

And following her win, Biles spoke to IOC President Thomas Bach and said:

"We're not just entertainment, we're humans. And there are things going on behind the scenes that we're also trying to juggle with as well, on top of sports."

This latest win gives Biles her seventh Olympic medal.

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

exit. With stars like Tom Brady, Lily Collins, and G-Eazy among the flood of supporters in her Instagram comments.

As of now, the United States has earned 73 total medals in the Tokyo Olympics.

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
