America's most decorated gymnast Simone Biles took to Twitter to join a long list of celebrities to partake in the viral handstand challenge.


In a bid to kill boredom and pass the time, several social media challenges have sprung up. One that has been particularly intriguing to people is the "handstand challenge."

Popular gymnast Simone Biles posted a video of herself doing the challenge and captioned, "Handstand challenge." The viral challenge involved someone putting on a shirt while doing a handstand, but she decided to spice things up a bit.

While holding a handstand and putting on her shirt, the gymnast simultaneously removed her sweatpants, proving her prowess in flexibility and strength.

The trend began with actor Tom Holland, and he began a chain through which those who took on the challenge would challenge friends to join.


The coach at the center noticed young Simone imitating the gymnasts.


When Holland first put up his own video, he had a hard time completing the challenge. He tagged Jake Gyllenhaal, who did it effortlessly. Simone, however, came on the scene and upstaged them all, and without a wall for support.

Biles challenged actress Halle Berry and her fellow Olympic gymnast Elle Black to join her in showing off their muscles. Both women politely declined, saying that they would prefer to leave it to her. Black wrote:

"Girl, I'm too old for that. My wrists would turn to dust."


U.S. Olympian Lolo Jones also put her body to the test and shamed all other opponents except Simone's "handstand with a twist."

Biles couldn't have won four Olympic gold medals in Rio in 2016 and worked her way to becoming the world's most decorated gymnast without showing off a little.

Simone and her sister, Adria, were raised by their grandparents, Nellie, and Ron after their mother began battling with substance abuse.


Nellie and Ron officially adopted the pair and helped the young star discover her gift. Her story began when she visited a gymnastics center on a field trip with her daycare group.

The coach at the center noticed young Simone imitating the gymnasts, and soon enough, the gym sent a letter requesting that she joined them. By 2011, the bright star had already established her standing at the junior elite level.

In 2013, she dominated at the junior elite level and won her first U.S. and world all-around titles. Since the dawn of her journey, Simone had always been a trailblazer, and her super-strength handstand was only a drop of water in an ocean of her talents.
