She’s Still Got It!
The smoking hot photos come on the heels of Nastia being front and center on NBC’s coverage of USA’s drama in the gymnastics department. It was recently revealed Simone Biles dropped out of the completion due to a condition called the “twisties.” Nastia joined the other NBA hosts on Monday night to explain the phenomenon and revealed most gymnasts have experienced it at some point. Nastia says the condition is when your mind isn’t in sync with your body. In other words, when you are flying through the air and flipping, you have to be sure you are going to land safely. If your mind isn’t connected to your body, it can be disastrous.
Lighting Up Toyko!
“Literally can not tell up from down. It’s the craziest feeling ever,” Simone described. Adding it’s like “Not having an inch of control over your body. What’s even scarier is since I have no idea where I am in the air I also have NO idea how I’m going to land, or what I’m going to land on. head/hands/feet/back…”
As we reported, Simone received huge support from everyone including multiple celebrities who applauded her for dropping out of the completion regardless of people’s expectations.
