It happens to the best of us! Simone Biles looked beautiful at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, but her outfit involved a pair of super high heels that caused her to trip and almost fall down the stairs backstage. Not quite the move she’s used to! WATCH the video right here.
Simone Biles, 19, tumbled down the stairs at the MTV VMAs on Aug. 28, but don’t worry — she made a fast recovery, as any gold medal-winning gymnast would. WATCH the video, via TMZ, below:
Poor Simone! It can be embarrassing to trip like that during such a huge event, but knowing her positive attitude, we’re sure Simone brushed it off with a smile. Of course, the last time Simone almost fell like this was at the 2016 Rio Olympics, when her near-tumble off the balance beam cost her the gold. She recovered during her routine, though, and took home the bronze — not too shabby.
Simone and her teammates stepped out on the red carpet in beautiful Sherri Hill dresses, dazzling everyone. Simone, Laurie Hernandez, Aly Raisman and Madison Kocian looked so pretty, but they were bummed to be missing the fifth Final Five member, Gabby Douglas, who was home recovering from a trip to the hospital, where she had a cyst removed.
Gabby has since updated fans, informing them that she is doing well. “Just wanted to let you know that I’m doing ok! I had a complication from a prior injury that caused a cyst to grow on a bone in my mouth,” she revealed on Twitter. “Got it removed and feeling much better now! Thanks for all your concerns and prayers…and HUGE thank you to the doctors that have taken care of me these last four days!” We’re so glad Gabby is doing great.
