USA Hits the Gold Mine at the 2016 Pac Rim Championships
USA struck gold more than once at the 2016 Pac Rim Championships last weekend in Everett, WA. A total of 27 medals including 17 gold and 10 silver were awarded between the women’s, men’s, and rhythmic gymnastics teams.
The one question on everyone’s mind was, “How will Simone Biles top her last performance?”. Without fail, GK Champion Simone Biles captivated the crowds with her radiant smile and new floor routine! Her easy going attitude and solid landings on the tumbling passes made this unmatched routine appear like second nature. Simone Biles received the All-Around gold medal by a landslide: 62.450, a 2.41 lead ahead of second place.
What captivates audiences more than her off the charts routines, is her bubbly personality and brilliant smile. In a recent interview with the New York Times, Simone shared how she copes with the intense amount of pressure. Her remedy: focus on one competition at a time and have fun.

Simone wore this custom v-neck gymnastics leotard. The shimmering magenta opalescence hologram bodice radiated under the spotlights and was complemented by an elegant magenta mesh top and sleeves. Our new peacock brilliance Swarovski crystals cascade down the center and create symmetrical ribbons that dance along the sleeves. Eyes from all over the arena were captivated by the endless sea of sparkle at every turn.
