Simone Biles made a triumphant return.

Competing for the first time since withdrawing from the team competition a week earlier with a case of "the twisties," Biles won the bronze medal in Tuesday night's balance beam final, her seventh career Olympic medal, tying her with Shannon Miller for the most by a U.S. gymnast.

When she saw her score, a 14.0, Biles nodded. She was behind China's Tang Xijing with five competitors still to go, and Biles knew there was no guarantee she'd stay on the podium.

China's Guan Chenchen went last and won the gold with a winning score of 14.633, followed by Xijing who scored a 14.233 to take silver.
