Simone Biles's Nike Unlimited Video With Her Mom

“That’s Just My Simone” — Biles's Mom Talks About Raising an Olympic Champion

If the incredible performances from Team USA in the past few days haven't induced enough tears, here's yet another tearjerker for you, courtesy of Nike.

In a powerfully narrated video documenting Simone's childhood until now, Simone's mother, Nellie, describes what it was like to raise the most impressive gymnast of our generation: "Always nonstop energy . . . that's just my Simone."

Momma Biles talks about how gymnastics requires a lot of dedication and how young, "hyperactive" Simone has risen to the occasion in a way that humbles her. "I've seen her from the time she was 6 putting everything into this sport," she said. Yet despite the hard work and drive necessary to get to a gold-medal level, Simone's fun personality is paramount. "If my daughter is acting silly . . . if she's giggly . . . she's gonna have a good meet."

We're more than a little excited to watch this phenomenon take the stage for the individual all-around event today (where she is expected to win gold) — tune in at 12 p.m. PDT during the NBC live stream, or watch it tonight during Olympic primetime coverage!
