TOKYO (AP) – Simone Biles stuck the landing and won a bronze medal. The American gymnastics superstar delivered during the women’s balance beam final.

Biles drilled a slightly altered routine in front of a crowd that included IOC President Thomas Bach a week after taking herself out of several competitions to focus on her mental health. Biles earned her seventh career Olympic medal while dealing with a mental block surrounding twisting. She scored a 14.000.

Chinese teammates Guan Chenchen and Tang Xijing finished first and second.
