It was unclear on Sunday whether Simone Biles will compete in Tuesday's balance beam final at the Tokyo Games after American team mate Mykayla Skinner said she thought the four-time Olympic champion would "probably still be competing." However, it was not clear whether Skinner, who on Sunday took Biles's place in the women's vault competition and won silver, was referring to the 24-year-old's participation in the beam final or just generally after the Games are over. USA Gymnastics said on Sunday that Biles had withdrawn from Monday's floor exercise final, which was one of the four golds Biles won in Rio in 2016, and would make a decision about her last scheduled final on the beam later this week.
Kim Yo Jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said on Sunday that if South Korea carries out a planned joint military exercise with the United States it will damage the resolve of the two Koreas to rebuild relations, state media KCNA reported. Kim Yo Jong also said a recent decision to restore hotlines between the two Koreas should not be seen as anything more than reconnecting "physical" ties, and that it would be "thoughtless" to assume that summits are around the corner. Her comments come at a time when North and South Korea are in talks to hold a summit as part of efforts to restore relations.
