Congratulations to Spring [Houston], Texas' Simone Biles for becoming a four time Gold Medal winner [to go along with a silver medal] in the 2016 Olympics and proving herself to be the greatest gymnast in the world today!

Four time Gold Medalist - Three time World Champion - and the greatest gymnast in the world today: Simone Biles

The following is a post I published on July 5, 2016 of Simon Biles unique way of throwing out the first pitch at a Houston Astros baseball game for Independence Day.  She was a world champion gymnast before this Olympics and now she is a four time Gold Medal winner in the 2016 Olympics.  Bravo-Simone Biles!  A great American who has made Houston and America proud!

July 5, 2016: I Bet You've Never Seen A First Pitch Like This:

In major league baseball stadiums all over the United States [and Toronto in Canada] they will have an honorary person throw out "the first pitch."   At Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, they had numerous people throw out the first pitch on Monday, in celebration of America's Independence Day.  They had a  couple of our great heroes serving in the military throw out the first pitch.  And then had an Olympic hopeful, a world champion women's artistic gymnast from Spring, Texas [just outside of Houston], Simone Biles also throw out the first pitch. 


Minute Maid Park home of the 2016 World Series Champion Houston Astros  :-)
When you see how she threw it, or I should say how she wound up to throw it, you will see something I bet you have never seen before in all of the first pitches ever thrown.

That was Astros on the field reporter, Julia Morales, interviewing Simone Biles. 

Alan Ashby former Houston Astros catcher and current TV broadcaster for the Astros, said jokingly, it was good there weren't runners on base, she would have been called for a balk.
