Simone Biles, this year ditching the Nike sportswear giant she once fronted, today announced an expansion of her multiyear partnership with GK Elite gymnastics-wear. The 24-year-old superstar athlete, now the world’s most-decorated gymnast, updated her Instagram on Wednesday with a stunning leotard snap, one showing off plenty of muscle and plenty of promotional potential. The star’s 3.9 million followers also got a heads-up of what’s to come, with the 30-time Olympic and World medalist seemingly set to design gym wear, too. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Mid-April marked Biles dropping king-pin of sports clothing Nike in favor of a brand that’s more-focused on women. The Ohio native is now partnered up with Gap’s Athleta activewear brand, but it isn’t her only gig. The SK-II skincare spokesperson was today focusing on being a proud #gkpartner, posing from a studio with a muscly and confident showoff as she modeled a glittery blue leotard with a slight sheer chest panel and plenty of silvery sparkles.
Posing with hands on her hips and major boss vibes, Simone rocked a sporty ponytail, a bit of a poker face, and a chic manicure, telling fans:
“Excited to announce my new expanded and multiyear partnership with @gkelite! We’ll be launching some incredible designs together including a replica of what I’ll be wearing this weekend at #GKClassic.”
Simone, also snagged by food delivery giant Uber Eats in 2020, added that she’s designing “customizable leotards” as part of her new Legacy collection. See more photos after the snap.
Biles, who was quickly gushed over by NFL player boyfriend Jonathan Owens in the comments section, continued: “I’ll still be debuting my signature training tank collection every season so sure to follow @gkelite so you don’t miss out all the fun things we have coming your way!” Simone’s hunky beau wrote: “So proud of you babe” with a heart emoji.
“Strong Women Empower Women and you are an incredible inspiration! My daughter looks up to you and I’m proud to have you as her role model!” a fan quickly added. More photos below!
Simone was last year unveiled as the new celebrity face of popular delivery chain Uber Eats. Joined by “Queer Eye” face Jonathan Van Ness, the star was seen back-flipping in a leotard as she revealed cauliflower pizza with extra broccolini to be her choice of takeout, later revealing that she’s into Uber Eats for the convenience. Simone has been making headlines for her weekend brunches and steak dinners with boyfriend Jonathan Owens, even sharing her spaghetti and cheese dinner earlier this year.
