When does Simone Biles compete at the 2021 Olympics?
The GOAT of women’s gymnastics is back!
Simone Biles announced on Monday that she would return to Olympic competition after withdrawing early on due to mental health issues. Biles, who received as much criticism as she did praise for her decision will take her last shot at earning a gold when she hits the women’s balance beam on Tuesday.
The Olympics are in Tokyo, Japan which has made it difficult for American fans to watch the events live. Unless, of course, you’re a really big fan and you are setting some late night alarms.
But for Biles, it might be worth it, who knows how long we’ll get to see her compete at a high level.

- F. Saraiva – Brazil
- C. Guan – China
- U. Ashikawa – Japan
- V. Listunova – ROC
