Intelligent and Hawk-eyed 7-time Olympic champ Simone Biles questions the effectiveness of an essential utility in a public restroom. While a faucet’s functionality is to wash off one’s hands to protect from any infection, a common yet unnoticed blunder, as pointed out by Biles, is undoubtedly a matter of concern.

On several occasions, the mental health advocate has taken the privilege of her stardom and influence to enlighten and empower people to prioritize their feelings and emotions. This time, the gymnastics icon highlights a lapse in hygiene based on her experience with a faucet in a restroom, apparently a public health concern.

Infections and diseases are on the rise, and there is no space for any compromise at any level of securing public health. Biles’ post on her Instagram story featuring running water from a faucet must have received more head nods than likes. “One of my PET PEEEEEEEVEEEEESSSSS,” she described the running water close to the faucet.

One wouldn’t want their hands to make contact with the basin as they wash their hands. “Why is the faucet so close to the counter space? Bugs me & grosses me out. idk why ughhhhhh,” she captioned the video. Now that the gymnastics G.O.A.T pointed it out, one can resonate with her thoughts, “I never understood why…. I hate it.” Moreover, this suggests that she had encountered such faucets several times in the past.
