Olympic gymnast Simone Biles is back in her bikini and she’s been filming it. The 23-year-old uploaded Instagram stories this weekend showing off both her giant Houston, TX pool and its accompanying hot tub, with the 30-time Olympic and World medalist ensuring her 3.9 million followers saw she meant weekend business. Simone, fresh from immense right-wing backlash over her LGBTQ-friendly Uber Eats ad, was proving the haters can hate. She wasn’t going to have her weekend ruined by trolls. Check it out below.
Scroll for the action. The above snap landed on Simone’s feed during early COVID – yes, the “Tiger King” phase of the pandemic, when Simone shouted out the hit Netflix series with her “Sun Baskin'” bikini shot.
Simone’s Saturday stories, likely taken Friday night, showed the Ohio native chilling in her hot tub and with close friends. Simone swung the camera to take in her blue bikini top and glittery necklace, then taking in two female guests – maybe NFL player boyfriend Jonathan Owens was having the night off.
Simone has been keeping her fans updated on building a mega pool in her backyard. In September, the star made headlines for construction reasons as she built her pool to beat the “Houston Heat” – at the time, it was nothing but a giant concrete hole in the ground.
Simone now has herself one giant splash place, with daytime stories showing it off via a giant panorama.
“My favorite spot,” Simone wrote as she filmed poolside terrace seating, where fans have already seen Biles chilling out.
Simone’s Instagram is now jam-packed with cute couples snaps of herself and Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens. The 25-year-old went Instagram-official with Simone this summer, with the gymnast having confirmed her split from ex Stacey Ervin Jr. in her headline-making Vogue feature.
Owens, Simone’s “new boo,” has been taking his girlfriend out for steak dinners, twinning with her in Gucci, and just recently, he got called Simone’s “MANCRUSH EVERY DAY” by the gymnast herself.
With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics canceled, Simone is now keeping in shape back in the gym after months of home training. Scroll for more photos.
Simone, who admitted she “cried” when she learned the 2020 Tokyo Olympics had been canceled, has been opening up on her workout setup. In June, she returned to training at the gym, telling CNN:
“Our gym just opened up 2 months ago so we’re trying to get into the swing of things. It wasn’t easy so we had to do Zoom workouts.”
The pandemic hasn’t fallen sort on the delivery, though, with Biles making headlines for losing her pants during her now-viral “Handstand Challenge.”
