Closing the book on her second Olympics, Simone Biles bids adieu to Tokyo on Instagram. "not at all how I imagined or dreamed my second olympics would go but blessed to represent the usa," Biles wrote in her post. She also described her journey this time around as unique, and we couldn't agree more.
During her time at the Games, she showed us joy under unusual circumstances when her fellow teammates held their own smaller opening ceremony parade. She demonstrated leadership in cheering on her teammates after she took a much needed step back — protecting her mind and body. Biles then returned for her beam routine where she won a bronze medal. Celebrities, loved ones, teammates, and the internet cheered Biles along the way. Biles definitely felt those cheers all the way in Tokyo as she captioned her farewell post ". . . thanks everyone for the endless love and support. I'm truly grateful."
With all of the resilience Biles has shown during her time at the Games, one thing is for sure: she is and will always be the GOAT in gymnastics. We're excited to see what the future holds for Biles and her career.
