Biles drew global attention with her decision to withdraw from several Olympic finals, citing a struggle with “the twisties”. The term refers to a sudden psychological block experienced by gymnasts which can cause competitors to make dramatic mistakes and incur injury.
Making a return earlier this week, the 24-year-old secured a bronze medal for the individual balance beam.
