Simone Biles is improvising.
While the 23-year-old gymnast wishes she “was on a beach in Thailand,” she’s channeling the country’s tropical vibes at home in Houston, Texas.
Instead of a vacation abroad, Biles, who has four Olympic gold medals, put on a burnt-orange one-piece swimsuit and sun hat for a backyard hang.
Fans showered Biles with compliments. And while many praised her cute outfit and toned body, a lot of the commenters shared how the athlete has inspired them.
“Goooo awf girl,” a fan wrote.
“So fire,” another person said, with someone else exclaiming, “HOLY WOW.”
“You are so beautiful. I’m so glad young athletes have you to look up too. You are an excellent role model,” a user added.
The four-time gold medalist regularly shares pictures that show off her fit physique, which is achieved through gymnastics practice for six hours a day with some cross-training incorporated into her routine as well.
Even though her schedule is packed, Biles always prioritizes self-care and mental health. At the Gold Medal Goals event last month, which was hosted by YouTuber Joi Wade, Biles revealed her tactics.
"A part of my big self-care routine is just relaxing, getting my body worked out because mentally and physically we have to be prepared to perfect our craft," she explained.
She also admitted that naps are also a big component of her routine as they also help her to feel refueled. Biles added that she hoped to do more writing this year.
“I used to journal a lot more to put my thoughts onto paper if I was ever having a hard day or a really great day, anything that I wanted to document, and now I feel like therapy helps me with that, but since the pandemic, I haven't been able to go as often, so I do have a couple of journals that I'd like to start documenting 2021 in and see what happens and see where it takes me."
