Simone Biles is speaking out about the future of her Olympic run after withdrawing from the team finals in Women’s Gymnastics on Tuesday. “Physically, I'm good, I'm in shape. Emotionally, that varies on the time and the moment, you know, coming to the Olympics and being the head star of the Olympics is not an easy feat. We're trying to take it one day at a time, and we'll see,” she told Today’s Hoda Kotb. The Olympic star pulled out of the competition after only participating in vault, she was set to do all four events. The 24-year old gold medalist’s departure on Tuesday is leaving many fans to wonder if her plans to compete in the individual all-around are in jeopardy. Simone is set to take the mat on her own on Thursday, but she says that’s now up in the air. “We're going to take it day by day, and we're just going to see,” she said.
