Behold, The One Picture That Proves Simone Biles Is Literally Magical
She's our fave. Forever.
As any true Olympics fan will tell you, gymnastics is where aaaall the good TV is.
Amanar vaults! Preflight twists! Arabian double fronts! Not to mention the landings. Seeing a perfect, wobble-free dismount gives us the kind of inner zen that usually takes an hour of Bikram yoga to achieve.
It’s no surprise then, that US gymnast Simone Biles has been the unofficial queen of Rio 2016. Not only is she one of the highest medal winners of the Games so far, with FOUR golds and a bronze under her belt in total, but she’s also a joy to watch. And after winning first place on the podium at the Women’s Floor Exercise finals yesterday, we love her even more.
This snap, taken by a Getty photographer during Simone’s routine at the Rio Olympic Arena, just drives home the fact that this girl is MAGICAL:
HOW is that not Photoshopped?
And this steward knows it too. Simone = QUEEN.
Further solidifying her stance as our favourite, the 19-year-old met her long-time crush Zac Efron yesterday and had something of a meltdown.

Posting to Instagram afterwards, the gymnast said she was “on cloud nine.” More so from her Efron rendez-vous than her Olympic wins, we suspect.
