Simone Biles is not going to keep any stone unturned while aiming for the Paris Olympics in 2024. On previous notes, the most decorated artistic gymnast repeatedly admitted to her unfinished job at the Olympics. From time to time, that hurried pullout from the Tokyo Olympics gave Simone Biles the lowest feeling ever. Expressing that situation, the 26-year-old legend claimed, “I felt like a failure.” But as a comeback option, she proved to be ready to try her Olympic suit once again. So as a part of the plan, for the last few weeks, Simone Biles kept herself busy in the Simone Biles Invitational

But soon, concluding that gymnastics camp, the phenom threw herself into the training engagement hosted by the US authority. That unveiled a serious interest from the fans to take a look at Simone’s talent again. The result turned out to be riveting.

The US National Training Camp in Texas sent a call to the pivotal gymnasts from the country to try their measure under supervision. This time, the role of keeping supervision went to former Olympic champion gymnast Carly Patterson. Being a strict follower of routines, Simone Biles didn’t obliterate her gymnastic flips as well on Monday. In a thorough showcase of sporting abilities, the seven-time Olympic medalist took up the vault drill, especially the Amanar. Soon, in an ethereal display of prowess, Simone Biles wrapped up the drill with a smooth landing. Spot Gym’s X-post captured the lively framing of that aerial flipping. Fitting with that performance, the caption of the post went, “Magnificent Amanar by Simone Biles at the US National Camp.”

Moreover, on Monday, Simone displayed her natural moves in the rotations on uneven bars. Nevertheless, the Amanar Vault (named after Simona Amanar) attracted many more highlights for unavoidable reasons. In 2023, the former world champion wasn’t ready to try that drill. Meanwhile, in the Tokyo Olympics team final, that vault resulted in her twisties. That memory was still fresh in the athlete’s memory for a longer period of time. But the visuals from Monday proved Simone Biles’s upper hand in the situation.

The thorough improvement hoping for a better return 

In the Tokyo Olympics, Simone Biles’s early exit because of her twisties changed her thought process somehow. Previously, the athlete had made several arguments for having a strict life without familiar ones’ presence. But after Jonathan Owens came into her life, Simone embraced the situation in a better way. Her shift to normal days also came through thoroughly. Last year, the gymnast attended the Belgium World Championship and ended up with four gold medals. The US Classic title last year was another proof of her sound return.
