Roommates, Simone Biles continues her winning streak as she prepares to land another record-breaking gold medal at the Tokyo Summer Olympics this summer – but she also managed to find time to kill a magazine cover. Simone Biles is the newest star to cover Glamor magazine and she smiled as she talked about her career as the world’s greatest gymnast and more!
The whole world will be in focus this July on Simone Biles, who is making history again with her breathtaking gymnastics at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, breaking records and defying gravity. As the cover star of the June issue of Glamor magazine, Simone spoke about her different approach to this year’s Olympics compared to those she had attended in the past.
“I’m not a little girl anymore. It’s definitely up to me. Nobody forces me. When you’re younger you feel like it’s a job and you need to be pushed. But now it’s like this: that’s what I want to do, that’s why I’m here. I’ve done a lot before, but I’m still trying to reach new heights and see what I’m capable of, ”she said.
The Olympics aren’t the only big thing on her plate, as Simone Biles has big plans for the post-Games too – like putting together her own gymnastics tour for women called the Gold Over America Tour (or GOAT for short) .
Explaining the reasons for showing only female gymnasts, she said, “It’s an all-girl tour for women empowerment. It’s been a great year for women to express themselves and I think it’s nice to keep the ball going and make women happy and rediscover their love and passion for gymnastics. I know the men were really upset, but it’s my tour. “
We can’t wait to see Simone in all her # BlackGirlMagic glory at the Tokyo Games!
