Simone Biles didn’t quite feel like she truly belonged to the Famous U.S. Olympian Club. She admitted to feeling a “little nervous” around the likes of swimmers Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky during a recent photo shoot.
She was underestimating herself.
Another gold-medal performance by the transcendent talent suggested the club membership had expanded with proper justification. Biles sparkled and soared in her celebratory floor exercise routine Tuesday and won her fourth gold medal here. U.S. teammate Aly Raisman took the silver and 16-year-old Amy Tinkler of Britain the bronze.
