Superstar gold medal Olympic gymnast, Simone Biles, was in a significant amount of pain and was brought to the emergency room. U.S. gymnastics officials thought she might have appendicitis and were starting to work out how to approach the team event without the superstar on the roster. A CT scan revealed it to be a kidney stone. Very painful, of course, but at least Biles did not require emergency surgery.
