Wow. Shout out to my girl Simone Biles. I will point out that people always say I look like either her or Gabby Douglas. 1, because I’m black. 2, because I used to be a cheerleader so I have the gymnast body or whatever. ANYWAY, Simone made HISTORY this past weekend. She became the first woman EVER to win 5 all-around gymnastics championships. The crazy things is…Simone has only been training for 9 months after taking a year long break. Talk about talented!!!
And what I love is that she accomplished all of this while sending a quiet message with her leotard. By wearing teal, Simone sent the message that she was standing in solidarity with fellow sexual abuse survivors. This comes in the wake of many many many U.S gymnasts coming forward with sexual assault allegations against the former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.
