1. Simone Biles wins bronze in triumphant return to Olympic stage
Simone Biles made her return to Olympic gymnastics -- and the Olympic podium -- in Tuesday’s balance beam final.
Biles was the third gymnast on the beam and posted a score of 14.000, finishing with a bronze medal.
The American superstar returned to the gymnasium to compete in Tuesday’s balance beam final after missing the previous four events. Biles pulled out of the individual all-around, vault, uneven bars and floor exercise after experiencing the “twisties” on a vault in the team final last Tuesday.
Biles also won bronze on the balance beam at the 2016 Rio Games. She has seven Olympic medals in her storied career, including silver from the team competition in Tokyo. She tied Shannon Miller’s American record for most Olympic gymnastics medals with Tuesday’s result.

The two-time reigning world champion ripped his singlet at the chest like Superman after crossing the finish line ecstatic, gazing with his jaw dropped at the clock in utter disbelief.
On Tuesday morning many of the world’s fastest women will once again compete for a chance at Olympic glory.
The other day 11 track and field finals include: Women’s long jump, men’s 400m hurdles, women’s hammer throw, and the women’s 800m.
There will be final competitions in men’s pole vault and women’s hammer throw.

6. Sports Climbing will make its Olympic Debut
Sports climbing will make its Olympic debut 4:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday.
There are three disciplines in Olympic sports climbing: Bouldering, Speed, and Lead. Each participant must compete in all three, and a winner is determined by multiplying a competitor's placement in the various disciplines.
The lowest score wins gold. Because each competitor must compete in all three disciplines, each climber must have a combination of speed, flexibility, and endurance if they wish to reach the podium.
Team USA’s hopes of for gold in sport climbing's Olympic debut rest on the shoulders of Nathaniel Coleman and Kyra Condie. Coleman won three consecutive USA Climbing Bouldering OPen National Championships (2016-2018). Condie is making an Olympic debut that was once thought impossible.
Early into her climbing career it was discovered that she had idiopathic scoliosis and would require surgery. After being told she would never climb again, Condie now has a chance to be an Olympic medalist.
