Simone Biles will not be silent and issues complaints to USA Gymnastics prior to the Paris Olympics

Simone Biles is going back to the Olympics. One of the United States’ finest athletes, Biles will head to Paris this month after qualifying for the Olympic Games for a third time — but the weekend’s qualifying in Minneapolis was not easy for the 27-year-old.

Biles, who is married to Chicago Bears safety Jonathan Owens, had some fierce criticism for Minneapolis’ Target Center, where the Olympic trials took place. Biles’ frustration will not have gone unnoticed by USA Gymnastics, the nation’s governing body for the sport, but it remains to be seen if the organization will implement changes.

Biles sounds off on arena temps

Biles took to Threads to reveal her dislike of the cold temperature inside Target Center, despite the summer heat and humidity just outside. She wrote that she is “tired” of trying to perform in “cold a** arenas” and would like better conditions in which to perform.
This is not the first time Biles has complained about cold weather or chilly conditions. When her husband played for the Green Bay Packers, Biles often braved frigid weather in Wisconsin to watch Owens — who will keep on playing in cold weather in 2024 as a member of the Bears.

Still, Biles is professional enough — and obviously talented enough — to perform at a high level and put herself in a position to add to her silverware collection in Paris. She is one gymnastics medal away from breaking a tie with Shannon Miller for the most by a U.S.-born gymnast.
