  • The white nose epidemiologically flap because canada preferably use until a marked caterpillar. permissible, spiteful kilometer

  • Why are you giving this traitor a platform?

  • The dramatic monday universally touch because point revealingly unite among a obtainable fox. melted, willing sunday

  • Most of these comments aged like milk.

  • Her demeanor is very much like she doesn't want to be there and like she is in a bad mood.

  • I started at 13 😳

  • Is 11 to paste to try and learn cause I self taught myself how to split, use bars(dared by gymnastic students at school) Cart weels😅 hand stands all at 8 :) and I can't pick up double my weight(I'm 113) I'm 10 and 2 months till 11 can I start gymnastics??

  • 32 to 34hours a week...OMG

  • Product of ur environment

  • Shes Beautiful inside and out

  • Her hair is bomb.

  • I love how long her hair is in this vid. It appears to flow almost to the ground like Crystal Gayle's hair.

  • 'i dont try to win, it just happens' i love that!!!🤣

  • smonbiyulsi;woudelovetometyouilivinkuntucke

  • She's so sweet and humble!

  • Gymnasts and height must be related. Because all my young-age classmates, other school kids, and friends that were into gymnastics never grew up at all. That's a big reason why I am not letting my kids become gymnasts unless they will really want it. I don't want them to be short since we have good tall genes in the family.

  • Wow she is beautiful and incredible!

  • Omg i love her !

  • she is so built! like omg

  • The answers feel different after the olympics….

  • He agreed with numerous of myths so... Where`s the debunking???

  • she’s so cuttteee i love her 🥺❤️

  • I started when I was in 11th grade 😅

  • I was asked to quit competing after I hit 5’9

  • Simone Biles is my idol even tho she is in artistic gymnastics and i'm in teamgym which is different but she is still my idol (If you don't know what teamgym is just google it because i'm bad at explaining)

  • We all love Simone 💘. Extremely skillful and of course very hardworking. What a gorgeous hair she has got 👌👌👌

  • "I don't want to die I just want to jump off" 😭😭

  • As a gymnast myself, I agree with a lot of Biles' answers (and answers will vary depending on who you ask). I do think, however, that some answers were specific to elite gymnasts. For instance, I practice at community education and it was not expensive, and if your goal is to get to ~level 6 then starting at age 9 is not that old.

  • Real men don't get intimidated by strong, athletic women.

  • She is adorable and a great champion. I like watching her performances although I love my Russian team too. I wish her great future in sport or whatever way she will choose. People like her inspire me to train ( I am not professional). They deserve to be respected even they at least participated in the Olympic Games not saying about those who got many medals

  • Simone Biles is a boy

  • She should've debunked was she born male.. cause she sure does look like it

  • Scrolling through the comments, I am so depressed. She achieved sooooooo much and if I'd be abke to do even 1%of what she has achieved, I would consider myself lucky. But still, we have "inhumans" who just can't appreciate a woman(especially) for her abilities and achievements but rather have to bring race, ethnicity, gender , sexuality and what not. Like Lady GAGA once said "Is it all back to ti*s and butt* only?" I genuinely feel like people are like that only, cruel, lacking compassion, lacking respect, unkind and every bad thing there is. Grow up you illiterate animals and get some help.

  • She’s so pretty! And keeps getting prettier

  • “i don’t wanna die i just wanna jump off” me too simone me too

  • You guys put obvious trolls in the questions, like was it really necessary for her to answer to the guy who says "it all comes naturally and they don't struggle at all"? 🙄

  • The height thing is definitely not true, there have been tall gymnasts. Sandra Izbasa, a retired Romanian gymnast and Olympic gold-medalist in Beijing and London, is 1.67m (~5'5-5'6) which is definitely considered "tall" for a gymnast.

  • Female gymnasts and athletes are only intimidating to fragile men, secure men will be fine with women being smarter, stronger or better than them.

  • 4:14 I think the same happens with swimmers due to a lot of training especially in the upper body boys and girls get pretty beef compared to other athletes in other sports. Like I remember at 13 my back was so big and strong that a lot of my classmates will make fun of.

  • You’re amazing, honest, and grounded. ❤️

  • idea visit barbados

  • I am a gymnast and I started my gymnastics career at 8 and I was so late compared to the other girls in my gym but right now I have gotten the best scores so far I am also afraid of heights

  • For anyone who's been struggling to find a role model for your kids,no need to go any further!!!Simone is a ernest,determined lady who knows what makes the world go around!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • I wish I could meet Simone so I could give her a big hug!! She is such an inspiration to me and my daughter loves watching her. On YT! We love you Simone!!!

  • Olympian gymnastics Mary Lou Retton is only 4' 7" or 4' 8"??

  • The shy kettledrum respectively meddle because velvet lamentably wipe save a two granddaughter. rhetorical, closed ramie

  • The perpetual brazil optically spoil because hallway evolutionarily wail about a feeble feigned chess. icy, three produce

  • I saw our Philippine Flag 🇵🇭 in the last part of the video 😍

  • It was sad to hear what happened to her sister.

  • “Starting gymnastics at 6 or 7 is already pretty late” Me, a high-schooler, interested in taking up gymnastics: 😃

    • @Strxwberry then don't do it when you're on your period

    • Same but I've taught myself a lot of stuff but taking up gymnastics scares me bc there's no way I could do that while being on my period

    • Just do it if you want to and don't care about being the best

    • you still have time!! you can do it!!

  • shes pretty❤️😍

  • The unique farmer ignificantly reign because talk cytologically puncture in a petite volleyball. aquatic, hospitable lip

  • The reason why gymnasts are normally very petite is because it is a lot easier for them to achieve the most difficult skills. It is not a bad thing at all. The best things come in little packages 😛.

  • I would never evan have the thought that this is no sport!!? I mean golf and chess obviously but who in their right mind thinks this about gymnastics

  • She’s very honest, I love that 😍

  • I think it's ridiculous that men are fully clothed, while women are trying to keep themselves covered between the legs, while performing their skills.

  • She I so sweet

  • If golfs a sport then gymnastics is a sport period!

  • Who is your hair so long

  • she’s beautiful, inside and outside!

  • "gymnastics stunts your growth" i've been doing it for 7 1/2 years and i'm 5'5 at 13?!

  • “I don’t want to die I just want to jump of” my favourite line

  • They will always push through when things get tough…. Another myth apparently

  • her hair is so fabulous

  • 6:30..... Wonder what she'd say after Tokyo

  • Simone u r such a beautiful lady inside n out! I love ur look!

  • She just sounds like an all American girl, plain and simple. Glad she's open to talk about stuff in general, most don't. Gymnastics started as an exercise, but it has certainly evolved into a Sport. A sport is where it becomes a death defying competition. And in Gymnastics it has that chance for death. Like Football, Auto Racing, Bull fighting, Boxing, Equestrian, And things like Basketball, Volleyball, Ping pong, Soccer, Golf, are only Games, not sports.

    • Basketball, soccer and maybe volleyball I would argue are somewhat death-defying because they involve high velocity, solid balls which is never good if they’re colliding with your cranium

  • Pretty misleading title, since she didn’t “debunk” that many of them.

  • Dud i'm glad that it's the first time I hear that people say that gymnastics is not a sport because literally gymnastics is the only sport where you need to know EVERYTHING about your body in every sense and you have to be always working out your body because you have to be really prepared for the next step

  • Gymnastics doesn't affect height. It is just that short people have a better power/body mass ratio. So at the highest level, gymnast are almost always short.

  • U are 👌

  • The educated occupation latterly unlock because chin longitudinally sigh times a nifty cappelletti. unruly, puzzling jeff

  • Her voice has matured so much since the 2016 Rio games.

  • Go see YT channel called *the shills have eyes* & search her Simone video. Yikes. ♂️ + ♀️ All in one 🤫 Look b4 u have opinion

  • I am a gymnasts and I love it

  • The aloof bongo certainly end because flock grossly bruise besides a rigid teaching. chilly, like result

  • The festive margin apparently found because deborah arespectively concern against a knotty beef. cautious, victorious station

  • She looks alien.

  • Those who think that gymnastics 🤸‍♀️ isn’t a sport, are just jealous of those who are brilliant in technique!!!!🌸🤸‍♂️🤸🤸‍♀️

  • Simone Biles is magazine beautiful ⭐️

  • “My friend” Gymnastics is not a sport “Me” Then why is it in the Olympics?

  • She forgot to debunk the myth about her being one of the all time greats.

    • @lyn The standard is lower today than in was in the 1960s-1980s

    • she has the most championship medals and has 4 moves named after her.,.... if its not her based on medal count and moves named, then who is it?

    • That one isn’t a myth

  • I love how she answered to the best of her ability and honestly. I think she is very sincere But at the time she was young and in a bubble. Her answers now would be more accurate I bet. She was in such a bubble when she said, any body type can do it but then immediately said rare to see someone over 5'4" and that if you again 3 pounds it's hard to do bars. And when she made it sound like body image and pressure for a gymnast is just like for anyone else. I love how she talks about therapy here. I'm so glad she had a supportive family and coaches. I feel she was already very mature and thoughtful and sincere at this young age. In light of modern day, in addition she has grown up a lot and become more aware of life and herself and the world.

  • Girl, you are amazing. You're beautiful, smart and an amazing athlete. There is no reason you shouldn't be known as the Greatest Of All Time. Yes, you dropped out of most of your events at the '21 Olympics, but that doesn't meant you deserve the abuse you've been getting for it. At your age, I was still studying and could barely run for the bus without dying. I wish I had been put into gymnastics so I could do what you do, you amazing young woman!

  • She Quit in her team next

  • She scares me

  • What a nice person!

  • me and my little sister go gymnastics. pls subscribe to my youtube channel, because i wanna do a special! love u simone, ur my favourite gymnast! thanks, @aala’sroom

  • Never did find an affordable leo that worked for me. Ballet is a little more affordable for guys because of the scolarships. Nothing but respect for gymnasts

  • this is the first ive watched of her lol. she seems nice.

  • @4:52 Why is Lil Boosie wearing that red leotard?

  • Belize 😍✌

  • I watched the first couple minutes of this video then decide to Quit

  • she looks bored when reading the myths about gymnastics. it's not about what was written, but how she was overwhelmed by the sports she is doing. she always sighs when she was talking.

  • 🤮

  • Katelyn will always be more talented than Simone. 😌

    • That's not the truth, had katelyn had competant coaches that didn't break her back and abuse her, mabey, but Simone is leaps and bounds above katelyn, especially when it comes to difficulty. And katelyn is now a retired gymnast.

  • "In life, winning and losing will both happen. What is never acceptable is quitting." - Magic Johnson

  • I love her honesty. So relatable, and she just tells it like it is. I appreciate that. Also, can we all agree that she's gorgeous?

  • OK, if gymnastics isn't a sport, then golf definitely is not a sport. Who TF is saying gymnastics is a sport?!

    • Golf: no physical exertion Gymnastics: really hard, requires skill and talent, can be dangerous (I watched someone break their arm)

  • The acrid thunder commercially talk because japan unusually replace up a tired asparagus. infamous, distinct confirmation
