Simone Biles slipped into a bikini right on time this week. The world’s most decorated gymnast whose headline-making – and pants-removing – “Handstand Challenge” now sits at over 2 million views might have removed her clothes in the now-viral video, but Friday brought the 23-year-old beauty stripped down to a little bikini. Simone updated her Instagram stories on Friday afternoon from her quarantine location. Her quick video flashed the body that’s one of the gymnastics world’s biggest muscle machines. It also showed off the Ohio native’s unusual chest piercing.
Keep scrolling for Simone’s snap, plus that mind-blowing “Handstand Challenge.” Simone’s video today came as a selfie. Simone was kicking back on her porch and flaunting her jaw-dropping body in a low-key way – a white bandeau bikini top with segmented panels across the chest flashed the sternum piercing that Simone braved getting this year. The stunner also rocked peachy orange bikini bottoms as she went 100% makeup-free – Simone’s dogs were then seen hurrying towards her.
Bikinis aren’t always easy-going on Simone’s Instagram, though – keep scrolling for her recent storm.
Simone was subject to a particularly-harsh set of comments earlier this month as she showcased her killer bikini body while chilling poolside. The one-shouldered and skin-tight two-piece racked the beauty up over 174,000 as she caught some rays and wrote: “Never stop having sun,” but the comments section had other thoughts.
“The top looks a little uncomfortable” launched the storm, with a fan quickly clapping back – “Sometimes it’s better to keep your mouth shut,” they wrote.
“So the top does look a little bit tight? No need to offend her for saying that,” another user wrote.
“It’s called a lat. It’s a muscle. You should try working out some time” was another comment.
Simone’s social media has been killing amid the global pandemic. While the star has addressed COVID-19 seriously, also sharing a message from the Nike sportswear brand she fronts, she’s also been keeping her 3.8 million followers entertained – they’ve definitely been reminded of the star’s abilities. A video showing Simone working her way into an upside-down split while supporting herself with her rock-hard arms proved popular, currently sitting at 2.1 million views.
Singer Jordin Sparks had even commented: “Wow. Just…wow,” she wrote.
The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are now postponed on account of COVID-19, although Simone did speak out ahead of the now-canceled event with regards to the biggest pressures she’s faced:
“Probably ‘Skinner is better. Especially being an athlete. You want to still be fit but you want to be thin. But there’s a good balance and I feel like at 22, I’ve found it,” she said.
“I feel like [beauty] starts from the inside and then you can portray that to the outside,” she continued. “I think I feel most beautiful whenever I’m just at home, no makeup, hair in a bun, because that’s like the real, raw beauty of myself,” Simone added.
