    "The countdown has begun..."

    1. Simone Biles thanked fans for their love and support after she dropped out of the women's gymnastics team final and the women's individual all-around events:

    3. ...as well as former Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu, who supported Simone and explained why her decision to drop out was 100% the right call:

    I was 14 y/o w/ a tibial stress fracture, left alone w/ no cervical spine exam after this fall. I competed in the Olympic floor final minutes later. @Simone_Biles 🤍 decision demonstrates that we have a say in our own health—“a say” I NEVER felt I had as an Olympian.
