Olympic gold medalist, Simone Biles, and her all-star gymnasts are bringing their nationwide gymnastics show from the big stage to the comfort of your home!
What Is Simone Biles’s Gymnastics Tour?
The Gold Over America Tour is a female-led gymnastics and entertainment tour. It features the most decorated gymnast in history along with a group of champion gymnasts. The intent is to inspire the future generation of gymnasts and young athletes alike.
Set after Biles and her Tokyo Olympic teammates Jordan Chiles, Jade Carey, Mykayla Skinner, and Grace McCallum arrived back in the United States, the tour began in September and consists of thirty-five shows while including other former teammates and champions of Biles such as 2016 Olympian Laurie Hernandez as well as 2008 Olympian Chellsie Memmel.
The show is described as a “Pop Show-Gymnastics Spectacular” by Biles herself. The tour consists of themes unlike anything done before in post-Olympics gymnastics tours. It is also the first one that USA Gymnastics is not sponsoring but Athleta. This gives the champion gymnasts full creative control.
The story is about each individual finding gold in their own way while overcoming obstacles and understanding what teamwork is. Each athlete in the show performs to their strengths and skills.
With the tour concluding early November, Biles made an announcement on Twitter that they will bring the Gold Over America Tour back for one last show.
Simone’s Olympic Struggles Turn Into Lesson
Biles’s 2020 Olympic journey was one that wasn’t expected. After competing on Vault at the Team Finals, she made the difficult decision to withdraw herself from the competition. Simone said on Instagram she suffered from the “twisties,” a term gymnasts use when lost twisting in the air. Receiving both praise and criticism, Biles has continued to speak on her experience, including at the Gold Over America Tour.
