Simone Biles: Explosive Energy with Supreme Control

Mon Aug 12, 2019 10:20 pm

Watch at 0.20 into the video when she does a triple-double:

Technically, this element does not have a rating yet, but probably will be the highest ever above the current "H" element (double-double) becoming "I".
The Tokyo Olympics should be exiting!

She’s pretty old for a competitive gymnast isn’t she?

Maybe but nobody younger can touch her. I am glad she called out US Gymnastics for their doing nothing as they got molested for years.

Fun watching an elite athlete at the top of their game, doing what no one else can. Like watching Shaun White or Gretzky or Tiger in their prime - or Secretariat at the Belmont.
What a great performance
