But that’s not all about Simone. Away from the competition, Biles loves taking on challenges on social media and, unsurprisingly, does a great job there too.

Simone Biles takes the headstand challenge

The lockdown period turned out to be a difficult time for everyone. People were getting bored and quickly running out of things to do. The nice neighborhood spider-man, Tom Holland, came to save the day. The English actor has unknowingly launched a new social media challenge called the ‘handstand challenge’.

The task was simple; you try to wear a shirt while doing a handstand. Sounds simple enough, right? Only it wasn’t. Tom was heavily out of breath as he attempted the challenge. He further tagged fellow actors Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal in an attempt to do the same. Thus began the headstand challenge.

Bile quickly entered the arena and practically won the challenge. She took things up a whole lot more than a notch. She took off her sweatpants, using her feet while doing a handstand. In the video, we see Biles balancing herself expertly as she moves around while removing her pants. And as expected, Simone did it quite comfortably.

Social media was quick to react to the attempt as people named her the winner of the challenge. For all of you keeping track of what Simone can and cannot do, add this to the long list of things she can do.

Other celebrities to try the challenge

When Tom completed the challenge, he nominated Ryan and Jake to complete the challenge. While the ever-funny Ryan responded with a dramatic “no,” Jake was up to the task. He tried the challenge and completed it, further naming Hugh Jackman, 50 Cent, and his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Just like her brother, Maggie completed the task successfully. American hurdler Lolo Jones caught wind of the challenge and decided to change the game. Instead of putting on one shirt, she managed to put on two and celebrated with a sip of wine while doing a handstand.
