Taylor Swift returned to narrate a new promo for the Tokyo Olympics, as Simone Biles returned to compete in the balance beam on Tuesday night.
In the promo, Swift asks, “What do we want from our heroes?” as her song, “This Is Me Trying” from her Folklore album plays in the background. Swift continues as she explains the weight of the world that Biles has faced since withdrawing from previous events citing her mental health.
Biles was touched by Taylor’s words and took to Twitter to thank her, Swift responded writing, “I cried watching YOU. I feel so lucky to have gotten to watch you all these years, but this week was a lesson in emotional intelligence and resilience. We all learned from you. Thank you.”
Biles ended the evening with a bronze medal.
