Simone Biles is back! She's is returning in the gymnastics beam final live stream at the Tokyo Olympics. Team USA teammate all-around champion Sunisa Lee will also compete in the beam final.
Last week, Biles withdrew from the team final to focus on her mental health. She also did not participate in the all-around or event finals for vault, uneven bars, and floor exercise.
Yesterday, Team USA Gymnastics announced that Biles will be competing in the last individual medal event for gymnastics.
"We are so excited to confirm that you will see two U.S. athletes in the balance beam final tomorrow - Suni Lee AND Simone Biles!! Can't wait to watch you both," they tweeted.
The top eight gymnasts from the qualifying round move on to finals, though only two athletes per country may compete in the event.

The Olympics is a global event and can be viewed in almost every country on Earth. However, if you're not in your home country and can't watch the Gymnastics women's beam final live stream with your usual services — or you want to watch in your native language — you're not out of luck.
With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use.
Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well.
We think speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. Its 30-day money-back guarantee doesn't hurt, either.
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.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to your website or streaming service of choice and tune in.
