I'm crying there was a bee in her flowers???? pic.twitter.com/PBoXyM9G3j— Tianna Drahn (@tianna_drahn) August 16, 2016
Simone Biles has been ruling the 2016 Rio Olympics like the champ that she is. She is full of confidence, grace and seems quite invincible as she wins medal after medal, but this video of hers from the 2014 World Championships in Nanning, China, is an absolute show-stopper.
It’s hilarious as well as endearing to see the champ freak out over a bee in her bouquet.
The footage is from the medal ceremony for the individual all-around competition at the World Championship.
Biles was accompanied by Fierce Five member Kyla Ross and Romanian silver medalist Larisa Andreea Iordache at the podium.
All was going well until Iordache warned Biles about the bee in her flowers. All hell seemed to break lose — but believe it or not, even in chaos, the Team USA gymnast somehow kept it all together. Not for a second did her winning smile waver.
The prodigy, who has been dubbed the “Michael Jordan of gymnastics,” has won a total of 23 medals, 17 of them gold, in her career.
