Tokyo (AP) — Simone Biles Will not protect her Olympic title.

An American gymnastics superstar withdrew from the all-purpose competition on Thursday to focus on her mental health.

US gymnastics said in a statement Wednesday that the 24-year-old has chosen not to compete. The decision will be made the day after Biles withdrew from the team final after one rotation because he felt mentally unprepared.

Jade Carey, who finished 9th in qualifying, will replace Biles all-round. Carrie was initially unqualified because she was the third-largest American after Biles and Sunisa Lee. The rules of the International Gymnastics Federation limit the final to two athletes per event.

The organization said Biles would be evaluated before deciding whether she would attend an individual event next week.
