U.S. Gymnast Simone Biles Has Us Super Pumped for the Olympics
By Philiana Ng
There’s still a little over a month to go before Rio, but already Olympic fever is starting to take shape!
Over the weekend, U.S. gymnast and all-around badass Simone Biles reached a historical feat, becoming the first American to win four straight national titles. So impressive is her accomplishment that the last time it happened was in the early 1970s.
Even though the Columbus, Ohio, native didn’t automatically qualify for the Olympics with the win (but duh, she’s a lock), we’re pretty sure she’s going to crush the competition. Just look at this unbelievable floor routine at the U.S. Championships in St. Louis, Missouri.
Biles, who’s active on Twitter and is addicted to Snapchat (who isn’t?), is already gearing up for the Olympic trials in San Jose, California, in early July where she’s going to dominate, dominate, dominate.
