Biles, who came into the Games as the heavy favorite, has cited her mental health.
She has received support from other athletes, including U.S. Olympic swimming legend Michael Phelps.
“We remain in awe of Simone, who continues to handle this situation with courage and grace, and all of the athletes who have stepped up during these unexpected circumstances,” Team USA said in the statement issued Friday night ET.
After Biles withdrew from the individual all-around gymnastics final, American Suni Lee won the gold medal.
