Today is the day to watch the gymnastics women's all-around live stream at the Tokyo Olympics, which was  rocked by the withdrawal of Simone Biles. The event has already taken place and the all-around champion is ... well, that's a spoiler, so you can scroll down the page to find out. But the women's all-around will be rebroadcast in primetime on NBC.

USA Gymnastics cited mental health in the announcement that Biles was sitting out the all-around competition.

“We wholeheartedly support Simone’s decision and applaud her bravery in prioritizing her well-being,” the statement said. “Her courage shows, yet again, why she is a role model for so many.”

That ended Biles' bid to repeat her achievement from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games and become the first woman to win back-to-back all-arounds in 53 years. It has not been determined if Biles will compete in any of the individual event finals next week.

The individual all-around is one of the events in the Tokyo Olympics Gymnastics competition. It features the athletes taking on all four apparatuses: floor, beam, uneven bars and the vault.

Team USA's Sunisa Lee was already set for the all-around after qualifying in third place. Taking Biles' place is Jade Carey, who qualified in ninth place.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.
