In 2018, Russian Dina Averina won gold in the world championships after dropping her ribbon, while Israeli Linoy Ashram won silver. Back then, the ROC had no complaints about the score.

Three times world champion on the beam, Biles might have finished third but her mere presence in the final was considered a victory after she abruptly dropped out of last Tuesday's team competition.
The balance beam event will be Simone Biles's last chance at a gold medal in Tokyo.
The Israeli competed fourth, netting a score of 14.933. This is Israel's first gold medal in Tokyo, and second in history.
