Simone Biles To Flaunt Curves (And Muscles) In SI Swimsuit Issue [Pics]
While the standard protocol for most gymnasts after they’ve racked up gold medals at the Olympics is to do media rounds, tour and eventually get back to training, Simone Biles is throwing a monkey wrench into the usual plans.
The Olympic individual all-around gold medalist is going to strut her stuff for the upcoming Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and show off her coveted muscles.
But before you go worrying, know that Biles keeps it tasteful at all times:
Just last month, Biles shared a pictures of herself on Instagram in swimsuits while vacationing with family in Belize:
When people were less than warm in response to seeing her muscles, she let her detractors know she’s just fine, whether they like her body or not.
“You all can judge my body all you want, but at the end of the day it’s MY body,” she said on Twitter. “I love it & I’m comfortable in my skin.”
Biles isn’t the only gymnast from the #FinalFive making their debut in the annual swimsuit issue, though. Teammate Aly Raisman, 22, is also showing off for the camera:
Check out both of the ladies working it in this behind-the-scenes video from their SI swimsuit issue photo shoots. The issue is set to be released next month.
