The rise of Simone Biles
to athletic superstardom is being documented in a documentary
“Simone vs Herself
” on Facebook Watch
follows Biles’ rise from young champion in the making to the greatest gymnast of all time, as well as the pressures she faces as she prepares for the postponed Tokyo Olympics
“At six years old, I had no idea what they saw in me; I just felt like a normal kid, and I didn’t see anything special,” the athlete admits in the teaser, which was released on Tuesday.
Biles also recalls crucial words of advice she received from a coach before her first world championships: "You have nothing to lose."
“And I was like, ‘You know what, you're right, I'm a nobody,'” she says in the show, which debuts on the social media
platform on June 15.
