Simone Biles recently performed a stunning floor maneuver at the 2024 Xfinity Gymnastics Championships podium training. Donning a pink embellished leotard, the Olympian executed a perfect landing, leaving gymnastic fans in awe of the 'GOAT'.

Simone Biles had taken some time off after winning her sixth World title at the 2023 World Championships. She returned to the competitive stage at the USA Gymnastics National Training Camp in April to mark her 2024 Olympic season entry. Biles then participated in the US Classic, sharing the stage with fellow all-around Olympic champions Suni Lee and Gabby Douglas.

Biles scored 59.500 in the all-around to claim her seventh US Classic title at Hartford, Connecticut. The next event on the calendar is the most anticipated national event, the Xfinity US Gymnastics Championships, slated for May 30 - June 2, with Simone Biles atop the entry list.

The four-time Olympic gold medalist was spotted performing her floor routine with sheer precision, combining a triple-double, front full, and double-double. A video of the routine was shared by Inside Gymnastics on X (formerly Twitter):

"Some highly requested GOAT content," Inside Gymnastics' caption read.

Fans reacted to the video to express adoration and respect for their favorite gymnast. One fan commented:

"Simone. The woman that you are".

Another fan chimed in to appreciate the connection pass she executed on the floor.

"My favorite pass tbh."

One fan queried whether she performed the new triple-double, dubbed Biles II, the second FX skill named after her.

"I’m sorry… did she just stick that triple double *cough cough* biles II," the fan wrote.

Here are a few more reactions from fans online:

"Oh my gosh. She's trying to take a seat in the sixth row! Simone!!!!!! Jordan putting her hand up just in case! Love them!" tweeted a fan.
"Absolutely. AMAZING," commented a fan.
"She makes this look so easy but literally nobody else in the world even attempts this pass ugh. Simone the legend that you are," a fan commented.

Simone Biles drew inspiration from Gabby Douglas and others while watching the 2012 London Olympics

Biles lifted her first all-around championship title in 2013 at the age of 16. She initially aimed to pursue college gymnastics but soon shifted her attention to the elite after watching the gymnasts in action at the 2012 London Olympics.

In an interview with Vanity Fair in January 2024, Biles credited Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, and others for having planted the Olympic gymnastic seed in teen Biles' heart.

"I just wanted to try to do college gymnastics. I saw those girls and I was like, I’m going to the same camps they’re going to; maybe I could do that.”

The seven-time Olympic medalist will look to compete at the US Olympic Trials in June this year to secure her spot for the Paris Olympics.
