After stumbling on a vault, Simone Biles sustained an injury that forced her to leave the Olympics team competition early. This means that the U.S. women’s gymnastics team will have to fare without her for the duration of the team event.
Her other team members will continue their efforts to snag a gold medal during today’s competition. Biles and Sunisa Lee are at the helm of one of the world’s greatest gymnastics groups, although they were dominated by Russian athletes during this weekend’s qualifiers.
The pressure is on today, as the U.S. has earned a medal in every team event over the past three decades.
