Fans of the Olympics got a glimpse of what to expect from champion gymnast Simone Biles in Tokyo during a training session that was hailed as “incredible” and “effortless” on Twitter.

On Thursday, Biles pulled off the risky Yurchenko double pike during practice.

It’s a move no female gymnast has ever nailed in competition … until a few days’ time, perhaps?

After the opening ceremony if the coverage isn't 90% @Simone_Biles with some #synchronizedswimming thrown in for fun I probably won't watch much of the #TokyoOlympics
