10:40 PM

Simone Biles of World Champions Centre has withdrawn from the upcoming Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships after re-aggravating a right shoulder injury. She is being replaced in the Pacific Rim line up by Peyton Ernst of Texas Dreams Gymnastics.

From USA Gymnastics:
“Simone was ready to compete, but her shoulder started bothering her again during training so she is withdrawing as a precaution,” said Martha Karolyi, U.S. women’s team national coordinator.  “We want to be careful given the upcoming schedule for 2014 because Simone is an important part of the team.”
