Four-time Olympic champion Simone Biles came back to gymnastics on Saturday in triumphant fashion as she dominated the US Classic. She scored an all-around total of 59.100, and it was her first competition since the Tokyo Olympics.

Her sellout crowd in suburban Chicago witnessed her rip it up on the uneven bars (14.000 points), balance beam (14.800 points), floor exercise (14.900 points), and vault (15.400 points) and score pretty impressively, thus continuing to prove herself at this sport despite having issues with mental health and "twisties" back in Tokyo for the 2021 Games.

During her break from gymnastics, Biles worked on herself and took her mental well-being very seriously as a result of getting through therapy. The push she got from cheering fans and the fact they had faith in her certainly helped boost her confidence and determination to get back into the sport that she loves.

Biles’ return to the US Classic, where she made her comeback in 2018, for which anticipation and excitement were seen, was because, at age 26, her outstanding performance indicated there is a possibility of bidding on her to form part of the Paris Olympics next year.

Second was Leanne Wong with a score of 54.100 points, while Joscelyn Roberson scored 54.050 points.

Not only does Simone Biles’ remarkable comeback prove her extraordinary skills, but it also displays mental health support for elite athletes. As she commences on the route, her perfect achievements and courage continue to inspire fans as well as other competitors across the globe.
