RIO DE JANEIRO -- Simone Biles felt her right foot slip. Then her left.As she reached down to steady herself on the balance beam -- her first visible misstep during an astonishing Olympics that includes three gold medals and some of the most boundary-pushing gymnastics ever -- one thought ran through her head.Wow, Simone, thats five-tenths, Biles said.Thats it. Nothing more. Sure, winning a record five gold medals in Rio de Janeiro would have been cool. Yet going 5-for-5 was always somebody elses deal. It wasnt hers. Her only regret in earning bronze during the beam final on Monday centered on those five seconds when she found herself scrambling to recover from a wobbly landing following a front flip.Im not disappointed in the medal that I received because anyone would love to have a bronze at an Olympics Games, Biles said. But Im disappointed in the routine that I did and not so much the whole entire routine, just the front tuck, I guess. Because the rest of the routine was pretty good.It was, but it wasnt quite good enough to stand atop the podium. Her score of 14.733 ended up well behind the 15.466 put up by Sanne Wevers of the Netherlands and the 15.333 Final Five teammate Laurie Hernandez posted in grabbing silver. Biles wont leave Brazil with five golds -- something no female gymnast has ever done -- and shes totally OK with it.I think you guys want it more than I do, Biles said matter-of-factly. I just want to perform the routines that I practice.Biles will get one more shot Tuesday in the floor exercise final. A victory in that event would put Biles with Larisa Latynina, Vera Caslavska and Ecaterina Szabo as the only women to win four golds in an Olympic meet. Its heady territory for a 19-year-old, one who couldnt help but sigh as the admitted perfectionist waited for her score to flash.She wasnt happy with it, coach Aimee Boorman said. She doesnt like to make mistakes. Its life, and it happens, and yes, she is human.Even if Biles had nailed her routine, theres no telling if she would have matched Wevers and Hernandez. Wevers was stunning while working across the 4-inch slab of wood 4-feet off the ground, and she called her routine the performance of her life, one that ended with a hug from Dutch King Willem-Alexander and a phone call from the prime minister.To be out there and do my best routine ever in such a big final was amazing, Wevers said.It needed to be for Wevers to edge Hernandez. The 16-year-old is the youngest member of the Finaal Five who have turned the Rio Olympic Arena into a showcase of the widening gap between the U.ddddddddddddS. womens program and the rest of the world. Yet she hardly looked overcome by the moment as she dazzled on her favorite event while securing a seventh medal for the American women.Im very comfortable when Im up there, Hernandez said. Its incredible to be able to tumble on 4 inches of wood.Thats something that comes second nature to Hernandez, who regularly turns any random street curb into a chance to practice. She did that on her way to the venue on Monday, helping calm any lingering jitters.I dont really think about it, Hernandez said. I could probably sprint on the beam if I want to.The medal also gave the relentlessly charismatic Hernandez a chance to step into the spotlight after national team coordinator Martha Karolyi opted to keep her budding star out of the all-around competition. Hernandez accepted the assignment without complaint, and her voice was among the loudest in the arena during Biles gold-clinching floor exercise. Biles returned the favor after Hernandez stuck her dismount, and the two good friends laughed during the seemingly interminable wait for the score.She does those same exact routines in practice, Biles said. Im so glad she could share that with the world and show how hard shes been training.Hernandez turned professional shortly before arriving in Rio and could fill the void at the top of the U.S. program if Biles decides to take a break after the games. True stardom awaits her once she returns home, a notion Biles is vaguely aware of but trying to tune out. She still considers herself normal, even as other Olympic athletes stop her in the village to pose for selfies or say hi.There will be a sense of relief when she finishes her Brazilian-themed floor routine on Tuesday, an event in which shes the reigning world champion. Biles put on a display during the all-around final that Karolyi called the closest thing to perfection in the sport. One momentary lapse Monday did nothing to diminish Biles extraordinary time in Rio.Also Monday, Ri Se Gwang of North Korea took gold in mens vault, followed by Denis Abliazin of Russia and Kenzo Shirai of Japan. Eleftherios Petrounias of Greece powered his way to gold on still rings. Arthur Zanetti of Brazil took silver, with Abliazin capturing bronze. ' ' '
