Simone Biles Puts Me Some Effin’ Knowledge August 12, 2019

I was recently expounding (tediously and at great length, I’m sure) about how women’s gymnastics seemed to have hit a wall. With no new tricks, and with people already getting 10’s with the current repertoire, where was there to go?

It took only a couple of days for Simone Biles to shut me up:

First, with a triple-double on floor (the run starting at about 1:10):

…and then with a double-double dismount off the beam (at about 1:19):

Just wow.

She’s taking gymnastics to the point of being a superpower.

As Ed Driscoll would say, “Classical reference in title.” But the alternate title would be: “Simone Biles says, ‘Hold my beer.'”

Holy crap

That was awesome. I had heard about it but seeing it was nice.
Whenever I watch old skating videos of the Olympics, the skaters all look so quaint. The average teenage skater today could blow the Medalists of yore away.
