This slow-motion video of Simone Biles’ ground routine is fascinating


Halfway through the two-day American Gymnastics Championships, Simone Biles leads the standings, because of course she is. It’s the GOAT, so that shouldn’t come as a surprise. But the 24-year-old superstar continues to amaze.

After returning to competition a few weeks ago for the first time since 2019, Biles was stunned to become the first woman to do a Yurchenko double pike – an intense, powerful and breathtaking jump – in competition. Although she didn’t perform that move on Friday as she competed for her seventh national title, she still dominated.

For his floor routine, Biles performed two back-to-back eponymous moves, starting with a triple-twist double back. (In 2019, Biles became the first woman to do a triple-double.)

Biles’ ground routine was so powerful that she went out of bounds three times and told NBC Sports she had to “control [her] adrenaline rush. “But minor mistakes really don’t matter that much as she is so far ahead of her competition at almost every corner.

And this slow-motion replay of his first run is absolutely fascinating. It showcases Biles’ truly unmatched athleticism and his exceptional ability to seemingly defy gravity.

Really great. No matter how many times you watch this replay in slow motion, it’s amazing and one of many reminders that she’s the GOAT.

Here’s a look at Biles on beam, bars and vault on Friday:
