Simone Biles recently took to social media to post a video that captured her doing an incredible vault in honor of National Gymnastics Day. 


Simone Biles joined several other gymnasts in celebrating National Gymnastics Day when she took to Instagram to share a series of photos that captured her doing several gymnastics stunts. She captioned the post

"NATIONAL GYMNASTICS DAY swipe for a surprise."

It was a surprise indeed and a pleasant one at that because, after all the photos, Biles shared a video clip that caught her as she successfully pulled off several somersaults mid-air to land entirely on her feet. A surprised fan said

"NO WAYYYYYYYYY, Simone... you're next level."

Many others could hardly believe Biles had just executed a triple somersault that high and that fast while still landing on her feet. There were more commendations and it is safe to say that the talented gymnast broke the internet once again. 


Biles recently returned to the gym after staying seven weeks away due to the new coronavirus pandemic. Upon her return, she has continued to innovate and push her sport forward even while practicing and she shares the process with the world via social media.

Biles has now become even more popular across social media for her gravity-defying posts, and in August, she reflected on it in an interview with the Olympic Channel on Instagram live.  

[Stacey Ervin Jr.] had reportedly cheated on her on Valentine's Day.


In the interview, Biles revealed that she had never even considered that her videos would attract as much attention as it did. According to her, she thought it would catch the eye of the "gymternet" but it ended up snagging everyone's attention. 

However, it is not only her power somersaults and twists that have been attracting netizens — Biles also has a knack for swimsuit fashion. 


The decorated gymnast began this week with a gorgeous shot of herself in a lime green skimpy swimsuit. The outfit was an attractive fit for Biles but her fans noticed something was missing — her chest piercing.  

This is unusual for Biles who initially debuted her sternum chest piercing in early 2020. Fans wondered why the piercing didn't feature in her shot this time around. However, it takes nothing away from the overall hotness of the post itself. 


Meanwhile, Biles has also gone public with her new boyfriend, NFL star, Jonathan Owens. The 25-year-old Houston Texans player is now all over her Instagram page and fans love the romance. 

Biles' relationship with Owen's comes after her split from Stacey Ervin Jr. who had reportedly cheated on her on Valentine's Day and that was enough for her to end the relationship.  


In other news, Biles recently assumed the role of a superhero when she joined some of her colleagues to promote the launch of the new Avengers video game. 

The gymnast was made over by beauty influencer, Kandee Johnson who took a healthy amount of inspiration from Marvel's "Black Widow." 

Biles shared the result via her Instagram page and it was near perfect. Other Olympians who joined Biles for the project include Nathan Adrian, Jagger Eaton, and Allyson Felix.
