American gymnast Mykayla Skinner, who came to Tokyo only to see her Olympic journey come to an early end, will get the chance to try for a medal at the event finals.

Skinner will be replacing Biles, who withdrew from the final due to struggling with the twisties - a kind of mental block in which gymnasts lose their spatial awareness in the middle of complex skills. 

"Looks like I get to put a competition Leo on just one more time," she wrote on Instagram. "Can’t wait to compete in vault finals. Doing this for us @simonebiles ❤️ It’s go time baby!"

Skinner finished in fourth position on the apparatus during the qualifications behind teammates Simone Biles and Jade Carey, but could not advance to the final due to two per country rule.

The 24 year old gymnast did not compete at the team final as she punched her ticket to Tokyo by earning the second individual spot.
