After engraving her legacy as one of the best woman boxers, Laila Ali became a television personality. She followed the footsteps of her late father, the great Muhammad Ali, and stepped foot into the ring. Being the daughter of one of the greatest boxers of all time can bring in a lot of responsibility. But, that pressure was not enough to deviate Ali from her aspirations. She retired undefeated in 2007 as a boxer with world championship titles in two different weight classes. Since she retired from the sport, she has become a social media star and even published her cookbook.

Ali shared a post on her Instagram story, which was originally posted by ESPN. In the post, Jordan Chiles, a silver medalist at the 2020 Olympics, landed a beautiful vault at a gymnastics competition. Even though the judges gave her a score of 9.975, an exceptional someone believes that her vault was a perfect 10.

Simon Biles took to Twitter and complimented the young gymnast on her vault. Biles wrote, “That was definitely a 10 but aight.” Notably, Biles has bagged seven Olympic medals and is regarded as one of the best gymnasts ever. Her record is tied with Shannon Miler for the most medals won by an American.
