I Can't Stop Watching This Mesmerizing Video of Simone Biles's Vault Practice
It was a typical Monday consisting of physical therapy and work — nothing too special or out of the ordinary — until I went on Twitter and saw a video of Simone Biles doing her thing, per usual. The first time I watched this video of Simone's vault, I thought, "Wow, she's incredible." Then I watched it again and instantly knew that this had to be extremely difficult, because it's Simone — and she has a way of making difficult exercises look effortless.
I consulted our in-house gymnastics expert Sam Brodsky, who told me that Simone performed a Yurchenko double pike, a move that is typically done by men and is more difficult than the vault she got named after her in 2018! If this is any indication of what to expect from Simone this upcoming season, we're bound to witness history in the making.
