"Today, after further consultation with medical staff, Simone Biles has decided to withdraw from the event finals for vault and the uneven bars," USA Gymnastics said in a statement. "She will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam."
Biles stepped away from competition in the middle of the team all-around final earlier in the week. Later, she withdrew from the individual all-around as well.
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.
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."
