Simone Biles is back in her bikini. The 23-year-old gymnast – now the world’s most-decorated – celebrated Memorial Day weekend with a little swimwear action from quarantine, with her Monday update coming with both her stunning gymnast body and her signature stamp – the captions are nearly always off-kilter with Simone.
If you don’t live inside Simone’s Instagram, this is a girl who has updated in a tiger-print bikini and captioned it “sun baskin'” for a shout-out to hit Netflix series “Tiger King.” Keep scrolling for her photos and videos.
Camera angles can definitely skew the aspect. Simone’s photo showed her looking low-key – but jaw-dropping – as she flaunted the body that’s behind her 30 World and Olympic medals. Simone had been snapped in a skin-tight and strapless black bikini flashing those rock-hard abs, sculpted legs, and muscle arms – the Ohio native gets to call “OG” on strength – with eye glasses, long braids, and a giant flashing of both her belly piercing and her pearly whites completing the look.
“Hey big head,” the caption read. Keep scrolling for the viral Handstand Challenge that saw Simone lose her pants.
Simone, who has 3.8 million followers, clocked herself a sweet 32,000+ likes in under 30 minutes for her post. “I love u so much! ❤️ Queen of queens!! ?,” one fan wrote, with another saying that they’d looked up to Simone from a young age – “some day I want to be like you,” they wrote.
Simone has made interesting bikini headlines amid COVID-19. Earlier this month, the star actually sparked a $100 bidding war on Instagram after fans assumed she wouldn’t reply to her own posts – lesson learned. That was nothing compared to the Handstand Challenge, though.
Simone fronted media outlets in early April for a now-viral video of her performing the world’s longest handstand while simultaneously removing her pink sweatpants with her feet. Shot at home and with “Ridiculousness” on in the background, the video seeing Simone upside down and doing the Handstand Challenge even caught the attention of a major A-Lister – 53-year-old Oscar Winner Halle Berry wrote: “I love you woman but only YOU can do this.”
Simone has, however, attracted comments regarding a reported split from boyfriend Stacey Ervin Jr. – he’s alleged to have cheated on the gymnast over Valentine’s Day.
Simone has had a double-whammy of cancelations on account of the global pandemic. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics are now postponed, as is USA Gymnastics. Simone admitted that she broke down into tears upon hearing that the Olympics would be no-deal, but she acknowledged the pandemic, saying:
“We need to be sure everyone in the U.S. and around the world is safe. I cried, but ultimately, it was the right decision. Mentally, going another year, I think that’s what going to take a toll on us.”
