Watch Simone Biles return home to Houston after making history in Rio

  /  08.25.2016

Fresh off her record-breaking gymnastic performance at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Simone Biles returned to Houston to a very warm welcome complete with balloons, a marching band, a motorcade, and applause.

In a very humble, but nervous speech from the champion (who is now the first U.S. gymnast ever to win four Olympic gold medals), she said:

“I can’t thank everyone in all of Houston for coming out to see me today and to welcome me from Rio and…I don’t know what else to say! I’m nervous! And I love you guys!”
