Simone Biles Wins Bronze In Tokoyo Olympics Return

Simone Biles made history yet again Tuesday shaking off a week full of issues to win the bronze medal in her return to the Tokyo Olympics and she was PUMPED about it afterward.

Biles who came back to compete in the balance beam finals after withdrawing from the Games' previous gymnastics events due to a mental block posted a score of 14.00 landing her a medal that she says she's more proud of than any of her first place awards.

It means more than all of the golds," the 24-year-old said, "because I've pushed through so much the last five years and the last week while I’ve even been here.

Biles was outstanding in Tuesday's event hitting stunts with ease and finishing her routine with several flips, a grab of her heart and a massive smile. Biles ultimately ended up sharing the podium with gold medalist Guan Chenchen (who scored a 14.633) and silver medalist Tang Xijing (who scored a 14.233).

My mental and physical health is above all medals that I could ever win," Biles said after the event. "So to be clear, to do beam, which I didn't think I was going to be, just meant the world to be back out there.

And I wasn't expecting to walk away with the medal. I was just going out there doing this for me.

As we previously reported, Biles didn't compete in nearly every one of the gymnastics events in Tokyo after she said she was battling the "twisties.

Biles said she was having a hard time figuring out up from down while she was doing twisting stunts ... and called it all "petrifying."

The Gymnastic Great, though, shrugged it all off ... and her bronze Tuesday now gives her seven total Olympic medals, tying her with Shannon Miller for the most ever by an American gymnast.
