Simone Biles' 2016 Floor Routine Proves That This Record Breaking Gymnast Will Dominate The Rio Olympics
Last year, Simone Biles broke records as the female gymnast with the most gold medals in history. This past month, she proved why. Simone Biles 2016 floor routine was so incredible at the P&G Women's Gymnastics Championships in St. Louis it will probably leave you speechless, so be prepared. The 19-year-old gymnast is headed to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and if this floor routine is any indication, she's about to turn some heads, take some names, and who knows, maybe even break some more records.
The 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro will kick off on August 5, but the world's best athletes have been working to claim spots on their respective country's teams in the interim. Specifically for Biles, the U.S. Gymnastics team. The Gymnastics Championships were held through June 23 to June 26, where top gymnasts from all over the nation competed for a coveted position on the team. The young and talented Biles was there to remind us once again of her talent, and to once again, make some history. Not only did Biles win the all around U.S. championship with 125 points, she took home first place in vault, floor exercise, and balance beam categories, and became the first woman to win four consecutive national championships in 42 years. Below, watch the gymnast absolutely kill it in her floor routine.
If Biles' 2016 floor routine doesn't get you excited to watch the young gymnast dominate in Rio De Janeiro, I don't know what will. In fact, after watching that, it's hard to imagine that Biles won't be commanding the 2016 Summer Olympics, right? Plus, the young gymnast's super prepared. In March, she went on The Ellen Degeneres Show to reveal her training schedule. Biles works out 32 hours a week, six days a week, and only takes Sundays off. Add that to the fact that she's been preparing for these competitions her whole life (Biles started gymnastics at the young age of six), and you have a real force to be reckoned with.
Safe to say that we're all keeping an eye out for Simone Biles when the 2016 Olympics roll around. She's definitely not one to miss.
