GYM­NAS­TICS

Pretoria News - - UNPACKING INVESTMENT -

SI­MONE Biles cel­e­brated her 23rd birth­day on Satur­day by roast­ing USA Gym­nas­tics on Twit­ter, once again calling for an in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the much-ma­ligned gov­ern­ing body.

Af­ter USAG sent a “Happy Birth­day” tweet that said Biles would “con­tinue to amaze us,” the most dec­o­rated gym­nast of all-time proved she had in­cred­i­ble moves both on the in­ter­net and on the mat. “How about you amaze me and do the right thing... have an in­de­pen­dent in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” Biles wrote. It’s not the first time BIles has called for an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the gov­ern­ing body that al­lowed for­mer team doc­tor Larry Nassar to abuse more than 150 gym­nasts, in­clud­ing Biles, over more than a decade. | dpa
