Simone Biles had a successful return to Olympic competition Tuesday, winning the bronze medal on the balance beam.
Competing for the first time since withdrawing from the team competition a week earlier with a case of “the twisties,” Biles won seventh career Olympic medal, tying her with Shannon Miller for the most by a U.S. gymnast.
The U.S. track and field team added a pair of silver medals to its haul Tuesday at the Tokyo Olympics, with veteran long jumper Brittney Reese scoring her third consecutive Olympic medal and Rai Benjamin taking second in an exhilarating 400-meter hurdle race.
The U.S. men’s basketball team overcame a slow start against Spain to prevail in the quarterfinals. Team USA has won a medal in every Olympics it has competed in.
