Simone Biles took under 30 minutes to be told: “Dem calf muscles be poppin???” today. The 23-year-old gymnast – now the world’s most-decorated – updated her Instagram ahead of the weekend with a fierce backyard snap that shouted out just about everything – the Nike brand she fronts, her two dogs, quarantine, and the body behind those 30 World and Olympic medals. Simone, whose Instagram is followed by 3.8 million, also clocked herself a sweet 40,000+ likes in the post’s first half hour.
Scroll for the photo that saw Simone showcase cheese-grater abs and calves that seemed to have half her fans losing it. The snap saw Biles shot full length and backed by brick and sliding glass windows, with the pet vibe strong as the star was accompanied by her two pups – @thebilesfrenchies have their own Instagram account and were tagged. Simone was showing off her muscle machine of a body in tight white PRO NIKE shorts and a matching sports bra, plus sneakers. Her belly piercing was on show, although the chest one debuted back in February was hidden.
Simone’s followers had plenty to say, and not just about the dogs. The star had captioned her photo: “I can’t ….. my frenchies say NO.” Remarks came in over the pooches, but the predominant focus within the post’s first 45 minutes were those steely-strong muscles – for which Simone gets to call OG. “CALVES,” one fan wrote. “Those calf muscles, tho,” another said. Simone also received an offer from a fan volunteering to be her dog-walker – and this girl’s comments can get interesting, with her bikini photo earlier this year sparking a $100 bidding war. Scroll for the viral Handstand Challenge.
Simone, who is back to training after missing two months on account of COVID-19, still sees her biggest pandemic headline-maker as that viral Handstand Challenge. The video showing Simone enter into one, hold it – seemingly forever – and simultaneously remove her pink sweatpants with her feet now sits at over 2.3 million views. It also got a comment from 53-year-old “Catwoman” actress Halle Berry – “I love you woman but only YOU can do this,” Halle wrote. The video is below, plus more photos.
While recent content from Simone has seen her back Black Lives Matter in the wake of May 25-murdered black man George Floyd, it’s likewise seen her encourage normal life. She’s shown off a new haircut – and sparked envy for every girl around as a result. Popular prior to the resurgence of Black Lives Matter was a post showing off Simone’s unique sense of humor. Yes, her bikini post came captioned: “How to get a bikini body…. put a bikini on your body ?.”
