The American made her highly-anticipated return after pulling out of five other events to protect her mental health
Biles made her highly-anticipated return after pulling out of her five other events at Tokyo 2020 in order to protect her mental health.
E the Team USA star claimed bronze after adjusting her dismount with a double pike to avoid twisting, which caused her problems last week.
The bronze compliments her three world titles on the apparatus, with her total of 14.0 behind China’s Chenchen Guan, who took gold and Tang Xijing, quem ganhou prata.
“I feels a little bit more sweeter for the bronze medal,” Biles told BBC Sport. “I had to go into training, change my dismount and pull out of my other finals as I wasn’t cleared to do them.
“I didn’t think I would be clear to do beam. I was shaking, I was so nervous. It just means the world to me to come out here and compete one more time before these Games are over.
“On the other ones I couldn’t physically twist in the air, I would keep crashing, I just wasn’t cleared safely to do those things. The mind is not there.
“But the beam I could safely do it and went into training and asked if I could change my beam dismount because if not I couldn’t do beam either. I feel like I’m still stuck on beam right now.
“It’s definitely too early to think about anything. The next step right now is the Gold Over America Tour that we’re hosting in the United States.”
