Simone Biles meets former gymnast champion Alexandra Nicholson
On her last day on Ambergris Caye, Sunday, December 1st, world-renowned gymnast and Olympic champion Simone Biles visited the Maruba Beach Klub at Secret Beach where she met with proprietor Alexandra Nicholson, a former gymnast champion who was inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame in August 2002. Biles was accompanied by a U.S press group, who are filming a documentary on her journey to Tokyo. They followed her as she visited a few places around the country, and after a stop on Caye Caulker Village, the Olympic champion decided to visit Secret Beach to meet with Nicholson.
This was the first time either met, and Nicholson said she felt privileged to share some time with her. Nicholson stated that everyone at her Maruba Beach Klub had a wonderful time during Biles’ presence. She felt that she connected with Biles immediately, as they both share experience in the discipline of gymnastics. “Flexibility, and concentration are key when it comes to gymnastics,” said Nicholson. According to her, Biles extended an invitation to visit her gymnasium in Texas, and Nicholson is looking forward to do so before the summer Olympics. Nicholson is former champion in gymnastics and was highly acclaimed by the World Acrobatic Society in 2001 where she was honoured with the title of ‘Acrobatic Legend.’ Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
