Gymnast Simone Biles is on the cover of Glamour magazine. In a video for Glamour posted on YouTube she debunks some myths about gymnastics.
Myth #1: all gymnasts are flexible. Simone said she and Aly Raisman are not flexible but flexible enough to accomplish what they need to.
Myth #2: gymnastics is not a sport?!? She said it is a year long sport with no offseason. Gymnasts compete year round. She trains 32-34 hours a week to compete for 3 minutes.
Myth #3: gymnastics stunts your growth…. she said she is 4’8 but she does know gymnasts that are 5’6- 5’8.
Myth #4: Simone is dating Houston Texan safety Jonathan Owens. TRUE! but when they met he didn’t know who she was!!!!
The Athleta Gold Over America Tour comes here to Spectrum Center October 27! And of course Simone Biles will be speaking and performing. We CANNOT wait!
Do you consider gymnastics to be a sport? We certainly do!
