Timothy Burke tweeted the slow-motion video early Saturday morning.
More than 700,000 people
have watched it.
Burke told Stardia on Saturday that it is a "better version" of the video he slowed down of Biles at the 2019 championships:

The previous video has been viewed over 9.5 million times.
“In that time, I’ve worked on developing better, GPU-accelerated neural net processes to slow down video, and this was a test of that,” Burke explained, adding, “the new video was slowed down 16x, and then ironically sped up 2x because Twitter couldn’t handle the resulting high-speed frame rate.”
Users on Twitter gave Biles' new video a perfect score:
