Even when they slip, the "Final Five" does not trip!
19-year-old Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles had a rare misstep at the 2016 Rio Games during the balance beam final on Monday, briefly losing her footing and grabbing onto the beam to regain control.
Biles recovered to take bronze in the event, behind gold medal winner Sanne Wevers of the Netherlands and U.S. teammate Laurie Hernandez, who took silver.
