(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

World champion Simone Biles (United States) has withdrawn from this week's Pacific Rim championships in Canada after aggravating a shoulder injury, USA Gymnastics announced Monday. Biles will be replaced by Peyton Ernst on the U.S. squad.

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

Competition begins Wednesday in Richmond, B.C.
