Olympic champion Simone Biles out of team finals with apparent injury – Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 2021-07-27 07:41:04 –

Tokyo (AP) – Olympic Gymnastics Champion Simone Biles appears to have been injured during the vault and has not made it to the team finals.

The 24-year-old American star, considered the greatest gymnast of all time, flocked with a trainer after landing in a vault. After that, she left the stadium with the team doctor.

A few minutes later, Biles returned with his right foot wrapped. She grabbed the bar, hugged her teammates Grace McCallum, Snissery, and Jordan Chiles, and then put on her jacket and sweatpants.

Americans are forced to finish the rest of the tournament without her, severely hindering their bid to claim the Olympic title for the third consecutive year.

Biles arrived in Tokyo as an unquestionable star of the tournament, but struggled at least with her high standards during qualifying.
