Simone Biles, who also qualified for those event finals, will not be joining them. She previously withdrew from the team and all-around finals. Team USA Gymnastics cited mental health in their announcement. 

“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.”

Biles will be replaced by teammate Skinner. The top eight qualifiers move on to finals and Skinner placed fourth. However, only two gymnasts per country are allowed to compete and she scored behind both Biles and Carey. Now, she gets a chance to vie for a medal.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

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

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.
