US gymnast Simone Biles has withdrawn from the finals for two of the four individual women's gymnastic events at the Tokyo Olympics, the vault and the uneven bars.
A statement from USA Gymnastics says Biles continues to be evaluated daily to determine whether she'll compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam.
The Olympian said she was putting her mental health first when she withdrew from the gymnastics team event after one rotation. The US women's team won silver there.
Biles also decided not to compete in the all-around. American Sunisa Lee won gold in that event.

MyKayla Skinner, who had the fourth-highest score in vault during qualifications, will compete in vault finals for the US alongside Jade Carey, who finished with the second highest score. Biles was the defending Olympic champion in the vault.
Biles this week explained, in a series of Instagram posts, why she had to withdraw, explaining the phenomenon of "twisties" and how dangerous it can be for gymnastics when they lose track of their position mid-air.
Women's vault and bars finals are scheduled for Sunday, while the women's floor final is Monday, and the beam final is Tuesday.
