Simone Biles has got bundles of talent. The gymnastics G.O.A.T became the youngest recipient of The Presidential Medal of Freedom for her unparalleled achievements and contributions to the sport. She has tackled several challenges to attain this position, to say the least. And this is what has given a serious definition to Biles’ personality. However, beneath all this, she has a funny and chirpy side too.

Among Simone’s siblings, Adria Biles is the most familiar one. They have shared a great connection ever since their childhood. Growing up together in foster care until being adopted, the elder sister, Simone is very protective of Adria. However, occasionally, they pick on each other too. In a 2016 post on Instagram, Simone pulled Adria’s leg in a comment.

Simone Biles reacted to Adria’s trials

Simone and Adria are very active on social media. In 2016, while Adria was undergoing her gymnastics routines, she posted a boomerang video bite of her trying a new skill. In the post, Adria is seen using aerial silks to suspend herself and balance on her waist parallel to the floor.

The caption read, “tried silks last night for the first time😛”  The post received several comments before Simone sent hers. “bet you fell out,” she commented. Before this, she sent an emoji of two hearts in a loop. Safe to say, she played the good sister and naughty sister at once. With the hearts emoji, she displayed encouragement. However, she revealed the typical mischievous sister her age in the next comment.

Simone’s fans didn’t appreciate Adria’s victories for obvious reasons. These changes and events made no difference to them. They still maintain a warm relationship and are supportive of each other.
