GYMNASTICS

Days after American gymnast Simone Biles concluded a historic performance at the world championships, the U.S. Olympic Committee announced Monday it will seek to banish the national organization that oversees her sport.

The drastic move involves the USOC filing a complaint to revoke USA Gymnastics’ status as a national governing body, initiating a potentially long adjudication process.

If the revocation is successful, an entirely new organization might have to be created to run American gymnastics.
