(CBS Local)- Simone Biles’ quest for a few more Olympic medals begins later this month in Japan when the Olympics’ women’s gymnastics competition gets underway on July 25. After winning four golds and a bronze in Rio, Biles looks to help the Americans once again capture team glory in Tokyo.
Despite not having her best performance at the U.S. Olympic Trials, Biles finished first in the All Around as well as the floor exercise and vault. She’s joined by Sunisa Lee, who finished second in all around and first on the uneven bars, Jordan Chiles (third all around) and Grace McCallum (fourth all around) as the U.S. looks to win team gold for the third consecutive Olympics.READ MORE: Hands to Heal GA raising funds for program to help youth cope with stress, anxiety
