“Faster Than Any Ball Player”: Simone Biles Lightning Speed on Baseball Field Leaves Fans Awestruck

Simone Biles, the Houston-native Olympic gold medalist gymnast, has enthralled the world with her scintillating twists and leaps. Once an athlete, always an athlete. Thanks to years of practice and cultivating an athletic body. And she does so once more, but this time not on the mat but with a baseball bat.

Biles last competed in the gymnastics events in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. She is, however, upholding sportsmanship by supporting her upcoming husband, an NFL player Jonathan Owens, and cheering him on. Additionally, she never misses an opportunity to dazzle her audience with her extraordinary talents.

Touted as the most decorated gymnast ever, Biles’ extraordinary skills have not only made the audience roar with excitement but have also left them speechless. In a recent video on Twitter, Biles sporting the Cleveland Guardians’ attire wields her athletic prowess by making a perfect shot at the ball and storming across to make a run. A fan wrote, “Jesus she’s faster than any ball player I’ve seen run the bases haha.”

Unfazed by the thousands of eyes watching her, the gymnastics superstar stunned the crowd with her child-like enthusiasm and skills. Besides making a flawless shot at the ball, Biles gracefully drops the bat to sprint across the field.

Besides, this is not the first time Biles is on the baseball field. She had come several times to toss the ceremonial first pitch. Interestingly, she had prepared for the moment to not end up in the ‘epic fail videos.’

In 2016, the gymnastics icon added a punch to her style for the ceremonial first pitch at Minute Maid Park. She pulled off an effortless flip and transitioned to make the pitch. The commentator remarked on her pitch, “She did the best job adding the flip in there.”

Furthermore, she said, “my dad tracked me out yesterday and forced me to practice.” Regarding the flip, she added a humourous angle to it stating, “.. then I was like, ‘Well, I’ll just do a flip just in case my throw is embarrassing, to throw everyone off.” She did another flip in 2019 in a World Series Game 2.

From an embarrassing fall in her first year on the senior team to becoming the first-ever female gymnast to win three all-around gold in World Championships, the gymnastics G.O.A.T has shown the world the numerous things an athlete can achieve with passion, dedication, and hard-work.
