Simone Biles may come back.
The women's gymnastics superstar and the most decorated athlete - man or woman - in the sport has struggled with her mental health throughout the Tokyo Olympics, prompting her withdrawal from the team all-around final as well as the individual all-around, vault, balance beam, and floor finals.
Despite qualifying for every gymnastics medal event in Tokyo, Biles has just one apparatus remaining at the final Olympics of her illustrious career. And according to one of her teammates, it's likely that the 24-year-old will compete one last time at the games before retiring from elite gymnastics.
After winning silver in the women's vault final on Sunday, Team USA's MyKayla Skinner seemed to indicate that Biles will partake in the final event of her crowded Olympics slate - the individual balance beam final.

At the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, a then-19-year-old Biles famously slipped during her balance beam routine and grabbed the beam with both hands to maintain her balance. Though the American superstar has maintained that she "was still happy" with the bronze medal that she snagged despite the error, she'll have a chance to improve upon the memorable third-place finish should she suit up for Tuesday's balance beam final in Tokyo.
