Please stop mentioning Biles every time one of these girls wins a medal. She is not competing and every time you mention her you are taking the spotlight away from them.

I don't know about that with biles I was a diver and gymnast In high school and it's real easy to loose where your at in the air when twisting and somersaulting especially if your sense of balance is off and it comes in a few way one is inner ear and then when your mind and body don't work in unison. In any event it's not easy and can be very dangerous you can land on your head and break your neck if you have no idea where your at in the air
