Gymnastics superstar Simone Biles is returning to Olympic competition in Tokyo, a little over a week after dropping out of several events to focus on her mental health.

Biles will compete in the balance beam finals on Tuesday.

Via Twitter, Biles expressed her appreciation for fans supporting her decision to step away from the other events. “The outpouring love & support I’ve received has made me realize I’m more than my accomplishments and gymnastics which I never truly believed before.”

Biles and all-around Gold medal winner, Suni Lee will both compete on the balance beam apparatus. Suni Lee has already scored a Gold, Silver and Bronze.
