Bile life after Tokyo: take the reins with a six-digit tour throughout the United States

The world was still dazzed by its acrobatics at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games when Simone Biles was immersed at the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions, a tour of 36 United States cities with too much to endure: the benefits were for the Federation that so much He had failed, every night was presented by the president, Steve Penny, charged to cover up the abuses of Dr. Larry Nassar ... at 19 and, between charities, deliveries of awards and Late Nights, the gymnast agreed to that paripé, He smiled and, in each show, flew. But now everything is different.

Before the Tokyo Games, Biles already warned the Fallen Federation of the United States of Gymnastics that he did not count on it and, it is more, that he did not have any of his teammates either. She passed what happened in Japan, would all celebrate him with a self-produced tour and despite the dizziness, despite the absence of her in most tests, despite the pressure, so she stays. This Wednesday the Gold Over America Tour premiered in Tucson with tickets between 20 and 145 euros and until November 7 will rolled across the United States including standing in huge enclosures such as Brooklyn Barclays Center [19,000 viewers] or TD Garden From Boston [19,580 spectators]. Another sample of how much has changed the best gymnast in history.

Five years ago, it was an employee. Now, after all, after so much, she is the owner. An example: the sponsor of his tour is no longer Kellogg's, who for years stamped his face in the cereal boxes, if not athlete, the brand of clothing that sponsors after leaving Nike and that, among other things, helps athletes If you want to get pregnant. Another example: the choreographers of the event are no longer the ex-Olympic John Macready and Mary Sanders, linked to other times in American gymnastics, if not the former responsible for the University of UCLA, Valorie Kondos Field, very well valued by gymnasts.

The intention is that all the participants charge equally and generously by the tour - a six-digit contract, is supposed - and to do exercises with which they are comfortable. In fact, in the Gold Over America Tour, the Bilos itself comes from what happened in the Tokyo Games and does it in the way of it: in the air. "We have composed a number called 'surpassed' ['overwhelmed'] I explain the anxiety, the depression that I felt there and the path that I have to travel to be happy again," the gymnast discovered 'Los Angeles Times' after offering Another detail: Katelyn Ohashi also participates in that number, the gymnast who discussed the golds when both were 15 years old, who retreated shortly after by pressure and who reappeared in the NCAA with a very dance floor that was done viral.

Along with Biles and Ohashi, at the show are all American medalists at Tokyo Less Sunisa Lee, that is, Jade Carey, Jordan Chiles, Grace McCullum and Mykayla Skinner and historic Yankee gymnastics such as Laurie Hernández or Chellsie Memmel. In most of the show, with live music of several pop artists, all appear together making choreography, although there are instants for individual profit that come closer to it in competition. In one of those key moments, Biles complete something similar to a floor exercise, but always without 'Twisties', the turns in the air that looked at him and tormented him in recent games.

It is not the tour a training for her if not a divertiment, a way to get distracted - and rich, of course, "after so many torments, the last one, his recent statement in the Senate following the Larry Nassar case. "Every day I have something," she commented after attending the Video Music Awards and the Met Gala to avoid asking the question that goes for several weeks for several weeks: Is she still an active gymnast? "Since the games I have only had time to improve my health and prepare for the tour," I assured, absent from the next month's World Cup, and without defining whether it will go to Paris 2024 games or if you will announce your withdrawal before the end of this anus. It is an unknown, but at least something is clear: now everything depends on it.
