Gymnasts watch out. Simone Biles is back for balance beam final

Simone Biles is back.

The 2016 Olympic gymnastics champion will return to competition in the balance beam final on Tuesday, a little over a week after stepping away from the team competition to address mental health concerns.

Biles, 24, won bronze on beam in Rio de Janeiro five years ago and qualified for the eight-woman final at the Ariake Gymnastics Centre on the first weekend of the Games.

She removed herself from the team final on July 27 after a shaky performance on vault during the first rotation. She then watched from the sidelines as her three American team-mates went on to land silver without her.
