Simone Biles’ rise to sports superstar gets the documentary series treatment.
Facebook Watch’s “Simone vs. Herself” traces Biles’ rise from a young champion in the making to the greatest gymnast of all time, and explores the pressures she faces in 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 child. I didn’t see anything special, ”admits the athlete in the teaser released on Tuesday.
Biles also remembers the essential advice she received from a coach before her first world championships – basically, “You have nothing to lose.”
“And I was like, ‘You know what, you’re right, I’m nobody,'” she recalls on the show, which premieres on the social media platform on June 15. .
