The Olympics may have come and gone but Gymnast Simone Biles is still kissing the headlines and tickling the fancy of her fans.
On Tuesday, the 24-year-old shared a photo in which she’s rocking a floral pattern bikini by swimwear brand Mikoh. The swimsuit showed off her muscled build as she stood at a beautiful seashore.
“Never met a beach I didn’t like,” she captioned the post.
Fans took to the comments to share in the star’s well deserved bliss.
“Okaaaay I see you,” a fan wrote, with others adding, “Living your best life!! As you should!!” and “Yasss Live your Best Life and Be Happy,” as well as, “Beautiful Gorgeous Stunning.”
This was one of several bikini photos and videos Biles posted of her tropical vacation over the last few days, sharing with her six-million-plus followers a view of her toned abs.
The athlete was recently named one of People magazine’s 2021 People of the Year, which also included Dolly Parton, Sandra Oh and American teachers. During her interview with the magazine for the December 2021 issue, Biles discussed the Tokyo Olympics, when she decided to step back from several competitions to take care of her mental health after getting a case of the “twisties.”
“That’s probably one of the first times in my career where I felt courageous and I felt like I had got to speak up for myself. [I] definitely can walk away from Tokyo, feeling courage, feeling at ease. And I did everything I could,” she said
Biles admitted that she was sad after making the decision, but that it was worth it if it wound up helping others.
“On the flipside, I was like, ‘You know how many people I helped by speaking out and teaching them that they need to speak up for themselves?’ And just kind of going through that road together, and putting mental health at the forefront,” she explained. “So I knew that it was right…It really showed me a different side of myself and how people see me, not just an athlete but as a human, and that was really different for me.”
