Simone Biles’ Look-Alike Sister Rekindles Gymnastics Past Despite Stepping Away Years Ago: “Urge to Always…”

Simone Biles, widely regarded as one of the greatest gymnasts ever has set new standards of excellence with 32 Olympic and World Championship medals. She is not only a role model for athletes worldwide, but also for her younger sister Adria who followed in her footsteps till she completed high school. Adria, who is often mistaken for Simone due to her close resemblance to her famous sister, has always expressed her enduring love for gymnastics, a sport deeply ingrained in her family’s life.

The World Champion’s sister later quit the elite competition to pursue further studies. Though she has mentioned that she somewhat regrets the decisions. However, she never misses staying close to her passion for gymnastics be it showcasing her support for Simone or sometimes even showing off her own skill. One such moment occurred recently when Adria once again proved that she resembles her sister not just in physical features.

In a recent story on Instagram, Adria was seen at the beach with a friend. The duo were enjoying reminiscing about old times as they performed a side-by-side flip. Adria Biles seemed nostalgic as she captioned her story, “The urge to always flip.” After competing for 10 years, Adria Biles left the sport while being at the junior elite level. She has since gone on to pursue a career in hygiene and dental assisting. However, both Biles sisters have openly acknowledged that Adria faced comparisons to Simone after every victory, which disheartened her.

During a video session answering fans’ questions, Simone spoke about how much the comparisons negatively affected her sister’s morale. She said, “She quit because of the pressure, and everybody compared her to me…Whenever she went to competitions like ‘Oh, her sister always wins, she always wins, that’s not fair’.” After stepping away from gymnastics, Adria joined a dancing crew affiliated with the Houston Astros called the Shooting Stars. She proudly represented the team at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, before eventually shifting her focus to pursue a career in healthcare.

She also appeared on Claim to Fame, a TV show hosted by Kevin and Frankie Jonas. Despite competing under the guise of the name Louise, her resemblance to Simone Biles led to her instant recognition. Adria once said in an interview how even in Brazil, she was often mistaken for her Olympic gold medalist sister, saying, “They’d ask for autographs and take pictures. And many times they didn’t speak English so I couldn’t explain that I wasn’t her.” In some way or the other, Adria always found herself tied closely to her love for the sport, despite stepping away from the mat years ago.

ADRIA BILES’ CONTINUING LOVE FOR GYMNASTICS
WHEN ADRIA BILES WAS YOUNG, SHE FOUND IMMENSE INSPIRATION IN HER ELDER SISTER Simone and actively pursued gymnastics. She diligently honed her skills and was a level 9 competitor. Though she did not win Olympic medals, break world records, or perform the dangerous Yurchenko double pike like her sister, at one point they had equal skills. During an “Ask Me Anything” session on Instagram, when questioned about any regrets regarding her decision to leave gymnastics, Adria responded affirmatively. However, she also shared that she now coaches and has discovered stability and purpose in her life.

Despite not confirming her return, Adria Biles evidently misses the sport. Earlier this year she took to Instagram to share a double flip. It was part of the “Everybody adds a flip” trend. Her perfect execution was accompanied by a caption, “I miss it every day” followed by a red heart. While Adria Biles has moved on from competitive gymnastics, her heart still cherishes the thrill of the sport.
