Simone Biles’ rise to sporting superstardom is getting the documentary series treatment.
Facebook Watch’s “Simone vs Herself” charts Biles’ ascent from a young champion in the making to the greatest gymnast of all time, and explores pressures she faces preparing for the postponed Tokyo Olympics.
“At 6 years old I didn’t know what they saw in me, I just felt like a normal kid. I didn’t see anything special,” the athlete admits in the teaser released Tuesday.
Biles also recalls the vital words of advice she received from a coach ahead of her first world championships — basically: “You’ve got nothing to lose.”
“And I was like, ‘You know what, you’re right, I am a nobody,’” she reminisces in the show, which premieres on the social media platform on June 15.
