Simone Biles has accomplished nearly everything one could in an illustrious gymnastics career.
But now, she can add beating an NFL player in a test of strength to her already impressive resume.
Biles recently took on her boyfriend – Houston Texans safety Jonathan Owens – in a rope-climbing race.
Owens has a 1-foot-3-inch height advantage and weighs more than twice his Olympian girlfriend. Yet Owens lost the impromptu contest by a considerable margin.
“I had you about three-fourths of the way,” Owens said to Biles after his defeat. “I just – I burned out.”
The friendly competition is depicted in the trailer of Biles’ upcoming Facebook Watch original docuseries, “Simone vs Herself.”
Of course, Biles is used to winning pretty much everything. The 4-foot-8 superstar gymnast has four Olympic gold medals, a record seven US Gymnastics Championships all-around titles, and more World Championships hardware than any other athlete in the history of the sport.
It’s no wonder Owens couldn’t keep up.
Biles is expected to dominate the Olympic games in Tokyo this summer. But before she can complete her swan song in Japan, the reigning all-around champion will have to compete at US Olympic Trials at the end of this month.
Biles’ qualification for USA Gymnastics’ four-person Olympics squad is all but certain, but it remains to be seen which gymnasts will compete alongside her in Tokyo. During trials, she’ll get a better idea of who will round out that group, just like everyone else.
NBC will air those trials on June 25 at 8 p.m. ET and June 27 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Viewers can watch Biles officially secure her spot in Tokyo and decide for themselves who deserves the other highly coveted tickets.
