The kindred spirit between Chiles and Biles, at the 2023 Xfinity US Gymnastics National Championship is entrenched in history. While Simone Biles’ had given remarkable performances, there was a fair share of heartbreak as her best friend, Jordan Chiles, faced a fall from the uneven bars. However, despite that, Chiles continued her routine earning her spot in the Senior U.S. Women’s National Team.

Even during the event, Chiles continued to hype up Simone Biles. “She’s 26 years old and she’s doing big gymnastics,” she took to remark during the event for Biles. Interestingly, Chiles is well aware of her standing and enjoys being a hype woman, “I love being the hype woman. Sometimes you know they think I get on their nerves all the time, but it is what it is,” she adds. However, recent times are not very hyped up for Chiles.

Shocking Reports Claim Gabby Douglas Never Announced Retirement From Gymnastics in 2016.

Gabby Douglas shot to fame in gymnastics during the 2012 London Olympics, winning gold in both the team and individual all-around championships. Her moniker, “Flying Squirrel,” reflected her agility and elevated her to the pinnacle of American gymnastics. However, at the 2016 Rio Olympics, the story took an unexpected turn.

Douglas received a lot of flak and backlash despite winning a team gold medal, which made the world think that she had quietly quit the sport. After her comeback just came to light, the issue of whether Douglas ever retired or she just quietly weathered the storm is currently the talk of the town.

Douglas is preparing for a return, having not competed since the 2016 Olympics, which was eight years ago. She discussed the difficulties she encountered between 2013 and 2016 in an interview with Inside Gymnastics, highlighting the necessity of taking a step back and rediscovering oneself. Douglas disputed the notion of an early retirement by expressing her unshakable enthusiasm for gymnastics. The gymnast talked about her experience giving up the sport to deal with the challenges of life, saying that her break was never a planned one.

The Guardian reported that Douglas said, ‘I’ve been avoiding the internet because there’s so much negativity,‘ following the 2016 Games. How did this come about? she received a ton of criticism while sporting the Team USA leotard. She was criticized by some for not putting her hand on her heart during the national anthem, and by others for not applauding her colleagues loudly enough at the all-around final. She was greatly impacted by all of this, and her mother Natalie Hawkins told Reuters that Douglas was left “heartbroken.”

Douglas understands how hard it is to go back to Olympic-level fitness, which is why she chose WOGA in Plano, Texas, for her return in 2022. Before her formal declaration in July 2023 for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, she had a year of covert preparation. The question remains: how did Douglas find the strength to come back after such a trying chapter as she gets ready for the Winter Cup?

Inspiring return of the Olympian unveiled

Douglas’s choice to come back to the professional scene gives women’s gymnastics a fresh dimension, coinciding with Chellsie Memmel’s outstanding comeback. During the pandemic, Chellsie Memmel, the 2008 Olympian and silver medalist from Beijing, started competing in elite gymnastics at her family’s Wisconsin facility. She took a break from gymnastics in 2012 and returned to it in 2021 to become a mother of two. During that time, she even conquered the difficult Yurchenko Double Full. Memmel’s sporting career came to a stop temporarily in May 2022 when she took on the position of technical lead for the U.S. National Women’s Artistic Gymnastics team.

Douglas is now swinging around on the uneven bars in WOGA and even performed flawless Chow 1 ⁄ 2 transitions and double layout dismounts. While the 28-year-old shared her practice online with her followers last year, for the past few years the mats have been deprived of her competence, and adding to the excitement is the third Olympic all-around gold medalist’s presence in the Paris Olympics squad.


“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Well, the phrase stands out tall when it comes to throwing parties, as no other town does it quite like Vegas.

Amidst the glamour and glitz, the gymnast made her presence felt, showing her love for the NFL world once again. But the buzz is not only about her support but also her cool attire.

Recently, the gymnastics star shared a story on Instagram where she could be seen attending the Friday night event at the Nomad Library Restaurant in the Park MGM. The crowd undoubtedly was best dressed; among them, Chiles flaunted her leather LBD from Diesel, along with her bag and shoes paired up with Prada glasses and she said, “I am Miss Diesel.”

The cheerleader next door was soaking in the excitement of the game, like a passionate fan but added flair with the outfit of the day. Her luxurious fit check had the fans drop their jaws on the floor. The number of guests includes Odell Beckham Jr., the newly crowned Rockie of the Year, C.J. Stroud, DeAndre Hopkins, and Zack Bia in the event. While catching eyes for her fashion outing this time, recently Chiles also earned a showcase as the country celebrates black history month.

Chiles has been an icon on and off the field

As Black History Month unfolded, the achievements of each champion took center stage to spotlight their remarkable feats. By delving deeper into their experience, the young black athletes played a pivotal role when it came to initiation for USA Gymnastics. Athletes like Jordan Chiles, Skye Blakely, and Shilese Jones offered their perspectives on the impact and importance of representing sports for the future generation.

The Olympian shared a snapshot of her new Gucci Diana Mini Tote bag

Jonathan Owens surprised his wife, Simone Biles, with a little bit of retail therapy.

On Friday, the Olympic gold medalist, 26, shared two Instagram Stories shouting out her husband for his generosity.

The first Instagram Story included two new designer shopping bags, one from Gucci and another from Yves Saint Laurent, along with a small box on the YSL shopping bag.

“I’ve been crying all day……..” Biles wrote in the post. “So he surprised me 🥺.”

“😍😍🥺🥺🤭🤭,” the gymnast added to the bottom right corner of the second Story. Biles did not elaborate on what made her cry earlier.

The Green Bay Packers safety recently returned home to Biles after his team’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers during the Jan. 20 face-off.

At the January game, Biles reshared an Instagram reel of the couple sharing a kiss at his game. She then reposted snaps of the two from Owen’s Instagram Story.

“My love,” the football strong safety wrote over a picture of the two opening their arms to hug each other on the football field.

Biles also penned a sweet message to Owens following his impressive season. “It’s been a helluva season & there’s so much to be proud of,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m so proud of the work you’ve put in & the confidence you exude throughout your plays.”

She addressed her husband, “I love you Jonathan! another football season happy & healthy in the books 🤞🏾.”

The pair, who got engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2022, first married in a civil ceremony in Houston, followed by a destination wedding in May 2023 in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Months after their wedding, in October 2023, Biles shared that marrying Owens had completely shifted her perspective on life.

“Gymnastics is just something I get to come in and have the privilege of doing,” she said on the Today show. “I don’t feel like it’s the end all be all anymore, as before I kind of felt like that. I get to go home to my husband, to my dogs, to my house and all of the things. So it feels really good.”


As the Paris 2024 Olympics draw near, the gymnastics world waits for epic showdowns.

Two icons are poised to return to the Olympic stage again after having a roller coaster ride since the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, and they are Simone Biles and Sunisa Lee. As the 2024 gymnastics season kicks off, all eyes are on the Winter Cup set to unfold in the United States.

The Winter Cup is a qualifying event for the 2024 U.S. Gymnastics Championships and also selects the junior and senior national teams. However, despite their aspirations for Olympic glory, it seems that the two icons, Simone Biles and Suni Lee, are missing out on this vital competition.

In an Instagram post by USA Gymnastics, the account shared the “Women’s Winter Cup entry list.” On the list were formidable names like Isabella Anzola, Jordan Chiles, Zoe Miller, Skye Blakely, Nola Matthews, Gabby Douglas also making a comeback, Trinity Thomas, and many other junior and senior women who were competing in the event. However, notable absences from the list included Sunisa Lee and Simone Biles. But it’s not just these two icons, Lee and Biles, who are sitting out the Winter Cup 2024.

Shilese Jones, who also won medals at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships, also seemed to be missing from the list. Other missing competitors include Jade Carey, the 2023 Swiss Cup winner, and Leanne Wong, another world championship competitor, who are currently busy competing for their college teams in the 2024 NCAA season. Additionally, Joscelyn Roberson, who was at the Worlds last year, is recovering from an ankle injury and was also missing from the list. Despite the icons missing in action, the 2024 Winter Cup will be a thrilling spectacle.

As the 2024 Olympics approach, Simone Biles is looking to make a comeback with fans and teammates looking up to her

Simone Biles stands not only as a gymnastic sensation but also as a beacon of down-to-earth virtues, captivating the hearts of both fans and teammates.

As the anticipation for the 2024 Olympics in Paris builds, Biles emerges from a two-year hiatus, poised to become the focal point of the Games.

Simone Biles

At 26, Biles carries the weight of expectations gracefully, juggling not only the demands of her gymnastic pursuits but also managing a two-career marriage with Green Bay Packers player Jonathan Owens. Amidst her rigorous training, she shares the gym with aspiring teenage teammates, forging bonds that transcend age boundaries.

Joscelyn Roberson, a 17-year-old teammate who had the privilege of being part of the gold medal-winning team at last year’s World Championships, reflects on the camaraderie: “Yeah, I definitely feel like the age gap doesn’t really necessarily matter in the gym. So our struggles are similar. Getting to know Simone has honestly been so fun.”

“I feel like we’re all trying to strive for the same goals and we’re all doing the same thing.”

The connection between Biles and her teammates extends beyond the gym. Roberson recalls the special moment when Biles, impressed by a video of a young Roberson’s gymnastic skill, shared it on social media, expressing awe. “It just made me feel really special,” Roberson says.

Zoe Miller, another teammate, stresses her admiration for Biles’s human qualities over her gymnastic acumen. Miller attests to Biles’s humility, care, and the deep connection they share.

The team dynamics, however, aren’t just about athletic excellence. Tiana Sumanasekera, a member of the Pan Am Games team, describes the team as a “very silly group of girls.”

Biles, alongside teammate Zoe Miller, plays a crucial role in lightening the atmosphere during challenging training sessions. “Whenever we are having a hard day or something, they’re always there to crack a joke and make us laugh even if we’re crying,” says Sumanasekera.

Jordan Chiles, who stood alongside Biles at the 2020 Tokyo Games, expresses pride in witnessing Biles’s return to gymnastics. Chiles sees Biles as not only a phenomenal gymnast but also as someone who has redefined the sport, akin to the impact Michael Jordan had on basketball and Serena Williams on tennis.

In the words of Jordan Chiles, “Seeing her do this again for her third time, I think is something that I wish I could do. I wish I could be in that position where it’s just like, you know what, this is what I want to do and I’m just going to go for it.”

Not only does Simone Biles dominate gymnastics events with five named moves, including four graded at H or above in the 2022–2024 Code of Points for floor exercise but she also sealed her place as the most decorated gymnast by winning a record-setting number of career medals at global events(37)—more than any other gymnast in history, male or female. Adding to her lasting legacy, a few years back she brought her childhood ambition of hosting the Simone Biles Invitational to reality—inspired after attending the Mary Lou Retton Invitational as a child.

The international tournament took place this weekend with five elite gymnasts that train at the Biles family-owned—World Champions Centre.  Jordan Chiles and Zoe Miller including Biles were in attendance. Following the Biles Invitational, a gymnastics prodigy shared her amazing experience in a recent update.

After its conclusion yesterday, an Instagram post was made by a level-6 gymnast Avery Fawcett sharing pictures with her idols in the video.

Over the years, the Simone Biles Invitational has made its name as one of the biggest gymnastics competitions in the world; bringing together a large number of athletes, coaches, elite gymnasts, and the famous ‘Athlete Glow Dance Party’ under one roof. In the middle of the championship hustle on the second day, Jonathan Owens appeared on an Instagram story posted by the WCC showing him patiently seated on a seat and assisting gymnasts with their applications.

Interestingly, 3,500 gymnasts were predicted to attend, so the event was fairly crowded. However, Owens’ tattoos and braided hair are noticeable in the video from the busy venue. Overall, the overwhelmingly positive responses from the people who attended the Biles Invitationals prove that all of the hard work that went into making it a success was worthwhile.

Sunisa Lee Springs Another Surprise Amidst Road to Paris Concerns in Latest Update

With a few months left to the 2024 Paris Olympics Games, the athletes are busy grooming themselves to achieve victory. Along similar lines, there is much anticipation about the participation of Olympic all-around champion Sunisa Lee in the Parisian arena. The world has yet to hear about it from Lee. But that does not mean there is any dearth of news from her side. However, they are not from mats, bars, or beams.

Right after Sunisa Lee pulled out of the Worlds, she has been posting her activities from all around the corner. Along similar lines, she recently dropped another captivating update for her fans, once again away from the mats.

After showing her adoration for the world’s leading brand in gymnastics attire, GK Elite, US artistic gymnast Sunisa Lee’s recent chic hairdo for a photoshoot captivated the attention of fans. The 20-year-old Sunisa Lee’s latest Instagram story captured her with reputed hairstylist Christina Antonette, exuding joy in a white bathrobe. Meanwhile, Christina looked equally delighted in her black hoodie.

Sunisa Lee shared the IG story with a heart emoji. Christina Antonette also shared a shooting video featuring Lee in her story. Christina Antonette tagged the hair salon “Spoke and Weal” and Sunisa Lee in her story. Sunisa Lee sported a high bun, with her tresses locked in, to enable smooth movements for the photoshoot. This will surely remind the fans of what Suni had said on an earlier occasion: “I love fashion so much and when I’m not in my leotard, I love putting looks together.” While it is glad to find Suni in this color, the gymnast has yet to clear the air about Paris 2024.

Sunisa Lee’s creativity also expands to gymnastics, as Lee wants to give a special name, ‘The Lee,’ to her full twisting Jaeger move. But fans are not sure how long they have to wait for this. In February 2023, Suni was diagnosed with a serious kidney problem that led the doctors to ask her to abstain from training and competing. This created havoc in her gymnastics career.

She abruptly ended her collegiate gymnastics career. She also withdrew from major events like World Championships and the Pan American Games. All these have cast doubt on Lee’s participation in the upcoming Olympic games. Olympic trials in Sunisa Lee’s home state of Minnesota are scheduled for June 2024. It remains to be seen if Suni comes back to her old glory before that.

Remember that super-cool custom puffer vest Simone Biles sported this past Green Bay Packers season? The self-taught fashion designer and NFL wife behind it has reached a licensing deal with the NFL.

A USA TODAY report said that the new deal will allow Kristin Juszczyk to use official NFL logos on her future designs, according to Sportico. Financial terms of the deal haven’t been released.

Four-time Olympic champion Biles isn’t the only GOAT Juszczyk has made game day garb for.

Those jaw-dropping custom puffer jackets that THE Taylor Swift and Brittany Mahomes wore to support their guys in subzero temps at Arrowhead Stadium — all Juszczyk.

If anyone knows what makes a game-day fit, it’s her. She creates her own every week to cheer on her husband, San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

Juszczyk has also created custom wears for Taylor Lautner, Oliva Culpo and her husband’s teammate, Deebo Samuel. She documents the making of her designs on her popular TikTok page, which has over 374,400 followers.

More about Kristin Juszczyk

A love for sewing was instilled in Kristin Juszczyk at a young age, according to the bio on her website.

“I spent countless nights crocheting with my grandma while watching Wheel of Fortune,” Juszczyk’s bio said.

Two decades later, Juszczyk rediscovered that love for sewing when making Halloween costumes for her and her husband.

“After finishing that project, I got a feeling like I’ve never felt before, a feeling like this is what I should have been doing my whole life,” her bio said.

From there, Juszczyk started “reworking” T-shirts, jerseys and even footballs into game day outfits for herself.

“I absolutely love what I do and just want to let you all know it’s never too late in life to rediscover a passion or talent!” the bio said.

The puffer vest Kristin Juszczyk made for Simone Biles

Juszczyk transformed the jersey of Packers safety Jonathan Owens into a puffer vest for his wife, Biles — and shared the process on TikTok.

Juszczyk started by removing the jersey’s sleeves. She traced out her pattern, then cut it out. She cut out the same pattern on a piece of fleece.

She attached the jersey to the fleece, then taped her lines to be channels for the puff. After that was stitched, she stuffed the puffer vest.

Next, she attached the collar and secured the vest’s openings.

The vest’s interior was just as special as its exterior. The green plaid lining featured Packers details, including pockets, a pennant and a patch. Plus, a patch of the Olympic rings and the NFL logo.

The end of the video showed a pic of Biles in the puffer vest walking hand-in-hand with Owens. She paired it with low yellow Moon Boots and a Louis Vuitton.

“She looks incredible,” Juszczyk said in the video. “Thank you so much, Simone, for trusting me with this project.”

Watch Suni Lee Crush a Wild New Gymnastics Skill No One’s Ever Landed in Competition Before

The 2024 Paris Olympics might still be six months away, but after scrolling through gold medalist Suni Lee’s Instagram yesterday, we can’t stop hoping that it would come just a little sooner.

On January 23, the 20-year-old Olympic gymnast posted a carousel of four short videos of her training. And they’re…pretty amazing. In each, Lee performs a release move from the uneven bars using a reverse grip, catches some serious air, flips, and then twists completely before catching the bar back over

Lee casually dropped the videos uncaptioned, but Olympics.com filled in the blanks for us: The move, which has never been successfully performed before in a women’s gymnastics event, is called the full-twisting layout Jaeger. If Lee can land it in international competition—say, at the Paris Games—it’ll be forever known as the Lee. According to a video posted by Artistic Gymnastics, the Lee is a complete 360-degree version of the stretched Jaeger, which is known as the Cappuccitti (named after Canadian gymnast Stephanie Cappuccitti, who first landed that skill).

Suni Lee wins gold in all-around 2021 Olympic gymnastics

It’s such a difficult combo that even other top-of-the-game gymnasts were stunned. “I did this once…then I woke up,” LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne commented. “Are u even real!!! Amazing!!!” 2020 Olympian Mykayla Skinner wrote.

With careful guidance from her medical team, she was able to make her way back to the gym—she just needed to be flexible and tweak her workouts depending on how she felt. Lee competed in the Core Hydration Classic in early August and the US Championships later that month, though she declined to participate in the US Women’s World Selection Event in September, saying her health was more important.

Suni Lee | Biography, Gymnastics Career, & Facts | Britannica

And that includes her mental health too. Lee said she’s taking it day by day, trying to focus only on things she can control, and seeing a therapist twice a week to protect her mind as much as her body.

Still, Lee’s recent posts—the wild full-twisting, layout Jaeger carousel, and another video from a couple weeks ago showing her flipping onto the beam—hint that she might be looking forward to Paris just as much as we are. The US elite gymnastics season begins late next month with the Winter Cup in Kentucky, and the gymnastics Olympic Team Trials will be held in June in Minnesota. We’ll certainly be keeping our eyes peeled in Paris for a possible newly named skill.
