Simone Biles is back in her bikini. The 23-year-old gymnast – now the world’s most decorated – updated her Instagram with a little sunbathing action on Monday. The body responsibly for those 30 World and Olympic medals was on show, with Simone’s 3.8 million followers also getting chill vibes, a little sun via the digital space, plus the Ohio native rocking a lettuce-trim bikini that hasn’t yet been seen on her feed. If you don’t live inside Simone’s Instagram, check out the “Sun Baskin'” bikini below that nicely shouted out Netflix series “Tiger King.”
Scroll for the photo clocking Simone over 40,000 likes in just 40 minutes. It showed the athlete plonked on chic, oversized cushions in her backyard and gazing upwards with a slight squint as the sun beat down on her. Simone had stripped down to a super-cute, feminine, and white bandeau bikini with string waist ties and a peep-hole at the chest – while the star’s chest piercing wasn’t on show, her rock-hard abs and toned legs were. Frilly, lettuce-trim details added girly touches as Simone also rocked dark shades.
And headlines haven’t been easy-going for Simone as she is now a plaintiff in the sex abuse lawsuit against USA Gymnastics and other bodies – Biles claims she was “sexually abused” by former USA Gymnastics physician Larry Nassar. The post came with a short caption as Simone wrote: “Summer sun ?.” Fans were up for it. “You’re stunning??,” one wrote. Meanwhile, another said: “Enjoying the summer sun! You have the most beautiful smile! ??.” Scroll for Simone’s hilarious tip on “how to get a bikini body.”
Simone’s biggest COVID-19 headline-maker was her now-viral Handstand Challenge. The star maintaining the challenging position while simultaneously removing her pink sweatpants with her feet has now surpassed 2.4 million views on her Instagram. There’s been a new update, though, with Simone’s “triple double” beam flips now forming a move never seen in the world of gymnastics. Both videos below – just keep scrolling. Simone has also made headlines for advising her followers on the best way to get a bikini body.
Simone’s bikinis have gotten some press in 2020. The “Tiger King” shoutout was followed by the gymnast getting humorous as she lay on her back in a chic, patterned-two piece, with fans totally losing it at the caption: “How to get a bikini body…put a bikini on your body,” she wrote. Then there was the bikini that sparked a $100 bidding war as fans assumed Biles wouldn’t reply to her own followers – and she did. The “triple double” now sitting at over 1 million views is below.
