Simone Biles opts out of the all-around competition.
3pm Update: Biles says it was not a physical injury but her decision to withdraw from the team competition was the result of stress. Biles told reporters that she was experiencing anxiety unlike she has ever experienced and felt it would be detrimental to the team for her to continue.
"I didn't want to risk the team a medal for, kind of, my screw-up because they've worked way to hard for that. I just decided that those girls need to go and do the rest of the competition."
No word if Biles will take part in individual competition.
