Simone Biles is already a goddess. I mean, her gymnastics resume speaks for itself: multi-event Olympic gold medalist, Olympic bronze medalist, 10-time world champion (plus four other world championship medals). The list goes on.
But Biles has really outdone herself this time. She took to Twitter to post a (totally PG) video of herself taking her pants off … while doing a handstand.
Watch this impressive bit of gymnastics yourself:
Biles’ video was a riff on the handstand challenge started by actor Tom Holland, who managed to put a shirt on while doing a handstand.
As difficult as taking your pants off in a handstand might look, a couple of other people managed to successfully complete the challenge set forth by Biles (and as far as we can tell, they sure aren’t Olympic-level gymnasts, either):

Meanwhile, other people simply watched in awe and applauded Biles’ talent, including Chrissy Teigen:
Simone I have to lay down and have someone else do it normally

Other people mentioned that they have a hard time just balancing on two feet most days:
I struggle standing, never mind handstanding pic.twitter.com/BG57CjyRHc

Still others compared Biles’ epic talent to another slightly more common occurrence:
Dang girl! I thought I was talented when I leanred to remove my bra without taking my shirt off first. I thought wrong!

Now, the only question becomes whether the Olympic committee will consider making pants-removal handstanding a new Olympic event? I mean, it could happen, right? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if they get wise.
What’s your favorite Olympic sport to watch during the summer or winter games? Curling? Luge? Synchronized swimming?
We’d love to hear it! Let us know in the comments, please and thanks.
