“Take That Phelps”: NFL Star Aaron Rodgers’ Ex Brought Simone Biles as a Secret Weapon To Beat Michael Phelps at a Never Seen Before Battle

Published 08/09/2022, 9:45 AM EDT

Two legendary gymnasts and a Hollywood superstar against a swimming GOAT. Is it a fair fight? Well, it depends on the competition because if it were swimming, Michael Phelps could take on a gang alone. Similarly, there’s no match for Simone Biles and her Olympic teammate Aly Raisman in gymnastics. However, since it’s not an Olympic competition, therefore, the odds are definitely not in anyone’s favor.

Simone Biles and team against Michael Phelps

The X-Men: Apocalypse actress Olivia Munn ganged up with Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles and Aly Raisman for a Lip Sync Battle against the swimming legend. The 42-year-old actress said, “When I found out that Michael Phelps was joining our set, I said the only way to beat a gold medal champion is to bring two gold medal champions. Take that, Phelps!” 

The episode was telecasted on a special live edition of the Spike TV series. Although Phelps looked shocked at seeing the gymnastics pro against him, it didn’t flinch his spirits. After the show, the swimming legend said, “That was awesome. I loved being on the team with these girls and seeing them perform is so special.”

Swimming or anything else, if there’s anything constant, perhaps it’s Phelps winning everything he takes part in. Furthermore, he gave a happy memory to his wife Nicole Johnson and 4 months old Boomer, who were cheering for him in the crowd.
