    The GOAT.

    • goofpuff says:

      Yes look how strong she is. So amazingly talented and powerful! I love it!

      • whatWHAT? says:

        her physique is amazing. and the strength!!! that little power pack of a person can FLY like nobody else.

        I LOVE watching her do her thing.

      • Jules says:

        She is incredible and shares her talent with the world.

    • Dierski says:

      YESSSS!! Get it Simone!

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes!! Simone is the GOAT and they won’t believe their eyes in Tokyo this summer!!

    • Merricat says:

      No argument!

    • Dss says:

      She truly is. She makes everything look absolutely effortless.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I saw a slow-motion video today of her doing a tumbling pass on the floor, and she is UNREAL! In some moments, she’d barely squat before extending and go flying through the air. It was like gravity didn’t apply to her.

      As a woman, there is something so gratifying and inspiring about seeing a woman be this strong. I wish her all the best.

  2. KNy says:

    I was so ho hum about the Tokyo games until I realized it’s another chance for Simone to show off her skill and win more gold!

  3. Becks1 says:

    She’s just amazing. I love watching her. Definitely the GOAT.

    • Becks1 says:

      Also omg. I just got the design on her sleeve. I knew it was related to a goat, but I kept looking for the whole image of a goat and figured I was just missing it. Now i realize it’s the head of a goat. LOL.

  4. Sally says:

    I oddly enough really like that dress and no, I don’t think she looks pregnant.

    • LightPurple says:

      I love the fabric but it would be way too much dress for me. She doesn’t look pregnant to me, the runway model does.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I got a very flowy nightgown to wear around the house when it’s hot, and I had no idea how much I LOVE a ton of fabric. I’m short, so usually it isn’t my thing, but dang, do I feel like a princess floating around my apartment in that nightgown. It has spaghetti straps and a sweetheart neckline, but the bottom is billowy, and I adore it. Not sure I could wear that much fabric in public, though!

  5. Zantasia says:

    The Sister Wives link was confusing, I thought you meant the Browns.

  6. Becks1 says:

    Also, I cannot wait for In the Heights. The Elle article linked in the GFY post about it is SO GOOD. It really highlights the care and effort that went into this. It seems like its going to be incredible.

  7. Elisa says:

    I’ve seen In the Heights twice now at screenings and it’s Amazing! Stay till the very end, there’s an end credits scene 😉

  8. MsIam says:

    Congrats to the golden girl!!! Looking forward to watching Simone in the Olympics. If it doesn’t get postponed, finger crossed!

  9. nicegirl says:

    Simone!!!! Yes

  10. BothSidesNow says:

    In regards to Julie Burchill, she should be exiled for any and all platforms and not allowed to speak anywhere!! Why is she even being given a platform with her decades of racist views? Someone needs to exile her immediately!!

  11. Stacy Dresden says:

    Simone is heroic. So grateful to have her representing USA.

  12. Sofia in TX says:

    My daughter trains at Simone’s gym, and we’re so excited for her and Jordan Chiles.

  13. Levans says:

    I’m so excited to live in the same timeline as Simone Biles! She is the greatest of all time! No other sport would penalize someone for landing more complicated mores, except for figure skating where they also punished a black woman for landing a flip.

  14. Eleonora says:

    Great role model as well

  15. The Recluse says:

    Burchill is vile. I got suspended permanently from Twitter just for quoting lines from Monty Python and the Holy Grail – in a conversation thread about that movie – in which I quoted lines the Black Knight said to King Arthur during their epic duel. I sent them multiple messages explaining the context of my tweet and those clueless buffoons still suspended me. Twitter is run by idiots and bigots.
    I had to switch over to Coso.Social and have a side account at Mastodon for now.
    My only regret is that I can’t go on Twitter to snitch to Eric Idle and John Cleese about those maroons.

  16. JRenee says:

    She really is phenomenal

  17. Calibration says:

    Simone is a work of art.
