While fans of Biles and her supportive husband, Owens, are proud of her for going back to her sports and dominating the game, the U.S. gymnast herself appears to be most excited about pushing back the boundaries that held her down.

After winning the all-around, balance beam, and floor titles, including having the highest score on vault at the 2023 U.S. Classic on Saturday night, the star athlete reflected on her performance. Speaking to the interviewer, she said, "Did it look like I was having fun? Oh, thank God. I thought I was going to (expletive) bricks, but that's good."

She continued, "I feel really good about where I am right now, mentally and physically. I still think there are some things to work on, (mistakes) throughout the night in my routines. But for the first meet back, I would say it went pretty well."

Showing off her exceptional skill, Biles wowed the crowd and a flock of NBC television cameras as she reclaimed her dominance against a loaded field that included Olympic teammates Jade Carey, Jordan Chiles, and Suni Lee.  Biles came out victorious as she finished with a score of 59.10 for the meet. Meanwhile, the closest score was 54.10, put up by 19-year-old Leanne Wong.

Fortunately for the renowned gymnast, she can finally boast of becoming a champion again since her last competition at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021, where she withdrew from the all-around finals for mental health reasons.

Commending herself for her resilience and referring back to the twisties she suffered at the last Olympics, Biles revealed, "It was like a mental injury, you know? So something like that, with the proper work and the proper help, I knew I could come back and hopefully have a shot."

As for how she has dealt with her twisties struggles, she added, "I still get a little bit nervous, but I think it's just subconscious. Other than that, I know my body is capable and prepared and all of that stuff, so I just have to trust my training."

Also addressing her fans on social media after her brilliant win, she took to her Instagram to appreciate them and express her joy. Posting a historic picture of herself celebrating her victory, Biles wrote, "tears of joy as I make this comeback, surrounded by the love you've shown! thank you for believing in me ??."

As expected, her husband, Owens, took to her comments section to serenade the athlete with words of adoration. He wrote, "So damn proud of you baby ❤️❤️❤️ Makes my day seeing you so happy and back doing what you love, and having FUN!!! I love you so much??."
