    One week after she withdrew from the gymnastics team final and individual all-around due to mental health issues, Simone Biles returned to the Olympics floor with an astounding balance beam routine. The G.O.A.T. never wavered as she landed jump after jump, and the commentators praised her "impressive" strength, both physical and mental, and "supreme confidence" in her abilities. As one Twitter user noted, Biles' beam routine ended with a double pike dismount, a move she hasn't done in nearly a decade.

    Biles' beam routine scored an even 14.000, earning her a bronze medal. Chinese gymnasts C.C. Guan and X.J. Tang scored gold and silver with 14.633 and 14.233 points, respectively.

    Congratulations, Simone Biles!
