Simone Biles smashes records so often that we're not sure when she gets a break from the mat. So, it should come as no surprise that the 26-year-old gold medal winner is celebrating the holiday season by wearing a collection of festive-themed activewear from her partnership with Athleta (you know, just in case she wants to do any aerials around the Christmas tree).
The Olympian showed off the ensembles in a series of photos on her Instagram page. “Holiday 'fits coming in strong – and comfy,” Biles wrote in her caption, adding a smiley face emoji with hearts. “There’s no time like the present, so I’m reaching for my favorite Athleta looks for all my festive routines with my favorite people. #PowerofShe #Athletapartner @athleta.”
In the carousel of pics, Biles wears various pieces—including sports bras, sweatpants and tights—in festive colors ranging from a Christmas tree green to a sparkly silver.
The gymnast's Athleta pieces have clearly been a hit, because everything is currently sold out on the site except for the Athleta Girl x Simone Biles Long Distance Bra (
$39; $20) which is still available in the XL/14 and XXL/16 sizes. (We're keeping our fingers crossed that they restock before the end of the year.)
The highly-decorated gymnast announced her “Because I Can” collection with Athleta back in September. The name was inspired by a quote from Biles in 2021, when a reporter asked her why she had performed such high-difficulty moves at the U.S. Classic that year. In a succinct, cheeky response, Biles said, “Because I can.”
This collection, which is targeted toward young girls, is the latest from Biles’s partnership with Athleta (which began back in 2021). When she first teamed up with the activewear brand, the World Championship winner said, “Using my voice has been very empowering for me and I’m grateful to embark on this new journey with Athleta to inspire young girls and women to do the same.”
Nothing says holly jolly like handstands and backflips.
