Simone Biles pulled out of the all-around competition for gymnastics on Wednesday, citing the mental health issues that made her drop out of team competition on Tuesday night. U.S. Gymnastics said the 24-year-old gymnast opted not to compete.
"I truly do feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders at times," Biles wrote on Instagram. "I know I brush it off and make it seem like pressure doesn't affect me but damn sometimes it's hard."
