American Simone Biles says she’s getting to “forever cherish” her “unique Olympic experience” after taking her overall Games medal haul to seven in Japan.
The four-time Olympic champion won bronze within the beam on Tuesday to feature in the silver she won within the team event.
Biles had pulled out of the all-around, vault, floor, and uneven bars finals so as to shield her psychological state.
However, she returned for the beam on the last word day of artistic gymnastics action, scoring 14.000 to finish third.
“[It’s] not in any respect how I imagined or dreamed my second Olympics would go but blessed to represent the USA,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Thanks, everyone for the endless love and support. I’m truly grateful. Leaving Tokyo with two more Olympic medals to feature in my collection isn’t too shabby!”
