Simone Biles' Nike Commercial Is So Inspiring We Could Cry
Someone pass the box of tissues.
Anyone keeping up with the Olympics — or news in general — knows Simone Biles is earning her title as the greatest gymnast of this generation, one gold medal at a time. The three-time world champion seemingly defies gravity with each routine, not letting the pressure of being an early favorite weigh her down. The 19-year-old stars in a new Nike commercial as her mother Nellie narrates footage of a young Simone flipping around, while Beyonce’s “Jealous” sets the tone. The clip is equal parts inspiring and tear-inducing — grab a tissue and press play up top.
