Tokyo: US superstar Simone Biles pulled out of two more Olympic finals at the Tokyo Games, USA Gymnastics said in a statement on Saturday.

She withdrew from the Uneven Bars and Vault events. She will be replaced in Vault by MyKayla Skinner.

“After further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars,” the statement said. “She will continue to be evaluated daily.”

Biles said she was putting her mental health first when she withdrew from the gymnastics team event after one rotation. The U.S. women won silver there. She also decided not to compete in the all-around. American Sunisa Lee won gold in that event.
