Simone Biles will not compete in the women's floor routine finals at Tokyo 2020, USA Gymnastics announced late Saturday night.
"Simone has withdrawn from the event final for floor and will make a decision on beam later this week," USA Gymnastics wrote in a tweet. "Either way, we're all behind you, Simone."
Biles previously dropped out of the individual finals for the uneven bars and vault on Friday night.
Biles' decision to drop out of her individual events comes after she had stepped away from competition in the middle of the team all-around final and withdrawn from the individual all-around earlier in the week.
On Friday morning, Biles hinted that she might be done competing at Tokyo this year, writing on Instagram that she "cannot comprehend how to twist" right now.
In the team all-around competition, Biles completed a vault that was not up to her usual standards of greatness.
She later explained that she was "having a little bit of the twisties" - a phenomenon that can leave even the most experienced gymnasts lost in the air.
After she decided to drop out of the vault and uneven bars, USA Gymnastics closed their statement with a message of support towards Biles.
"We remain in awe of Simone, who continues to handle this situation with courage and grace, and all of the athletes who have stepped up during these unexpected circumstances."
Biles' last chance to compete at Tokyo 2020 will be in the balance beam, scheduled to take place Tuesday, August 3rd, at 4:50 a.m EST.
Biles was the defending gold medal winner in the floor routine, having won at Rio 2016.
