With the Paris Olympics looming, Simone Biles finally made a much-awaited comeback last year. The American gymnastics legend took a break following the Tokyo Olympics to focus on her personal life and mental health. However, she is back to where she belonged and it is no surprise that she is rocking the gymnastics floor once again. On seeing a clip of her, Serena Williams’ elder daughter, Olympia, couldn’t control her excitement and had an animated reaction.

6-year-old Olympia is an avid sporting fan and likes watching soccer and gymnastics, much like her parents. While Serena Williams needs no introduction, Alexis Ohanian is connected to the sports world as a shareholder in Angel City FC, which includes Olympia as well. While the family loves different sports, watching a video of Simone Biles in action during her comeback, performing a chilling new floor routine, left Olympia inspired.

Serena Williams’ husband re-shared the video of Biles’ Triple Double first pass on X and wrote, “Jr. sees this and starts tumbling over the sofa. Love to see it.” Additionally, Ohanian also felt good watching the legendary American gymnast back in action.

Biles returned to action at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Antwerp, Belgium last year. She had a memorable tournament, winning four gold medals there. Subsequently, she also won the World Comeback of the Year prize by Laureus. Thus, going by her comeback and the form she is in, it won’t be a surprise to see Biles dominate in the Paris Olympics later this year. Despite Biles enjoying a successful return, it has been tough to believe for her. Recently, she shared a stunning reaction about her comeback.

Simone Biles left ‘blindsided’ on her comeback performance

Recently, Laureus dropped a new video on their official Twitter handle in which Biles reflected on her comeback performances. The American gymnast got candid while expressing that she didn’t believe it to be as good as it turned out to be. As a result, Biles was left ‘blindsided’ on this matter.

She said, “…my standout moments from 2023, if I had to describe it, it would be “unpredictable.” And then I ended up competing, which I didn’t plan to, and I’m very big on planning – everything is a set schedule for me. Going into a year kind of blindsided was a little bit nice.”

It goes without saying that Biles will be her country’s biggest hope at the 2024 Paris Olympics. However, she’ll have to ensure that she remains on top of her consistency and fitness. How many medals can Biles win in Paris? Let us know your views in the comments below.
