Simone Biles Does Backflip Before Throwing First Pitch At World Series - Watch Now!

Simone Biles throws out the first pitch at Game 2 of the 2019 World Series held at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday (October 23) in Houston, Tex.

The Olympic gymnast did a 360 back flip before she threw the baseball to Houston Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick.

“WORLD SERIES BBY ⚾️,” Simone captioned a photo of her family on the field, all wearing jerseys for the home team.

If you didn’t know, Simone is from just outside of Houston. Unfortunately the Astros lost the second game in the World Series 12-3 to the Washington Nationals.

Earlier this month, Simone made history at the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships by becoming the most decorated female gymnast in history!

Simone Biles Makes History at FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships!

Simone Biles looks super happy after finishing her floor routine at the 2019 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships on Tuesday (October 8) in Stuttgart, Germany.

The 22-year-old gymnast made history and broke a record that night – she became the most decorated female gymnast in history.

Simone received her 21st world championship title after her team won a fifth straight world team title. Congratulations Team USA!!

This was just the first of six medal events that Simone has, so she could be taking home even more titles.

Simone also opened up about wanting to quit gymnastics.

“Sometimes I wish I would quit,” she told NBC Sports. “The other day, we walked out there, and I was like, I literally hate this feeling, and I don’t know why I keep forcing myself to do it.”

“I hate that feeling like I’m going to puke before. But, you know, we love the thrill of it,” Simone added. “Reminds me to never give up because one day I won’t have the opportunity to get that feeling.”

Simone Biles Makes History Again, Gets Two Skills Named After Her

We see you, Simone Biles!

The U.S. Olympic gymnast performed on Balance Beam during Women’s Qualification on Day 2 of the FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships on Saturday (October 5) in Stuttgart, Germany.

She continued making history by getting two more skills named after her into the Code of Points, which makes four total, NBC Sports reports.

She and the U.S. women’s gymnastics team finished in first place. The U.S. earned a team score of 174.205 – 5.044 points more than second-place China.

“I’m pretty pleased,” Simone said. “I feel like I have a lot of pressure being put on me. My main goal going into tonight was to not be great, but just to do well. … It’s always nerve-racking because qualifications qualifies you into everything. Waking up, it’s just like, oh gosh, what’s going to happen tonight.”

Simone‘s most recent skills were her triple-double on floor exercise and her double-double dismount off the balance beam.

Simone Biles Doesn't Want To Be Called A 'Superstar' - Find Out Why Here

Simone Biles has been called a lot of things over the course of her gymnastics career – the GOAT, a force, and a superstar, among many others.

However, the 22-year-old athlete doesn’t want to be labeled a superstar at all.

Speaking during the pre-competition press conference at the 2019 FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships earlier this week, she explained that the label adds an extra pressure on her.

“If I were to label myself as a superstar, it would bring more expectations on me and I would feel pressured, more in the limelight, rather than now,” Simone says.

“I just go out there and compete,” she added. “[I] try to represent Simone… not ‘Simone Biles’ whenever I go out there, because at the end of the day, I’m still a human being before I’m ‘Simone Biles, the superstar.’”

So when I learned about Candid, a brand that helps boost confidence, I was so excited to partner with them,” Simone said in a statement. “Straighter teeth are just the start — because making that one little change can unlock so much possibility. I was also excited to work with the SmileTrain organization to help bring a smile to so many people.”

“Think about what you could do without any inhibitions standing in your way,” she continued. “Feeling like you look your best in photos. Laughing without holding back. Just being you. That’s what Candid is all about — giving you the confidence to express yourself. And they have the right team to help you get there.”
