When Simone Biles pushed off the vaulting table Tuesday, she entered that terrifying world of uncertainty. In the Olympic team final, Biles planned to perform a 2-twisting vault, but her mind chose to stall after just 1 twists instead. "I had no idea where I was in the air," Biles said. "I could have hurt myself." Biles, who subsequently withdrew from the team competition and then the all-around final a day later, described what went wrong during that vault as "having a little bit of the twisties."
