The American gymnastics superstar Simone Biles, who had withdrawn from the all-around final, is again forfeited for Sunday's finals, in vault and uneven bars, at the Tokyo Olympics, announced Saturday the American Federation of gymnastics on his Twitter account.

“After further discussions with the medical team, Simone Biles decided to forfeit the vault and uneven bars finals.

Her condition will be assessed daily to see if she can compete in the floor (Monday) and beam (Tuesday) finals, ”USA Gymnastics said.

Not sure to see her again in her Olympics

Simone Biles, five medals in Rio, created a stir last Tuesday by retiring during the team competition after a jump below his expectations.

She then explained that she needed to maintain her sanity and that she had less confidence in herself than before.

The four-time Olympic champion has also revealed to be the victim of a problem of "loss of figure" ("twisties") which causes her to lose her balance in the air and can seriously endanger her.

Thomas Bach, the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), on Friday found the American gymnast Simone Biles "courageous" to have openly mentioned her psychological torments.
