- The Russian women’s team won the gold medal in the team competition at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
- Simone Biles’ injury overshadowed the decision. The American withdrew from the competition after the first jump.
- It’s currently not clear if their missions in the all-around finals as well as in the device finals are at risk.
Big concern for gymnast Simone Biles. The American, the designated star of the Tokyo Olympics, withdrew from the competition during the team final.
How are you with Bayles?
The jump to Biles’ last start was completely unsuccessful, and she almost fell too. She then left the room for a short time and then refrained from doing other tasks. But then she came back and supported her teammates.
It is a “medical problem,” she said in a brief statement from the American Association. It is not known if the incident could jeopardize the 24-year-old’s start on Thursday in the all-around competition.
gold for russians
Without their exceptional athlete, the Americans lost in the battle for the gold medal and took the silver. And the victory went to gymnasts from Russia, who in the end advanced by about 3.5 points. Great Britain got bronze. The gold medal for the men’s team had already gone to the Russian camp.
