Biles pulls out from 2 more Olympic gymnastics events

United States artistic gymnast Simone Biles withdrew from the final competitions in the individual vault and uneven bars at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

She previously pulled out from the team and individual all-around finals, citing mental health concerns and sparking a public conversation about pressures professional athletes face at big tournaments. Earlier this year, tennis player Naomi Osaka withdrew from the Wimbledon Championships for the same reason.

Biles, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest gymnasts of all time, won four gold medals at the 2016 Summer Olympics. In Tokyo, she has so far earned silver in the team event, as she competed in qualifications.
