Simone Biles on the Today Show

After her whirlwind tour de force in Nanning, China at the World Championships, US gymnast and two time world all-around champion, Simone Biles made an appearance on the Today Show.

Of course, the topic on everyone's minds is the bee in her bouquet on the podium.  Natalie Morales asks her about the bee first thing. Simone explains Larisa (Iordache of Romania) pointed the bee out to her.  She tells the cast she was "trying not to freak out. But I just freaked out."

During this short clip, her medals are handled by the staff. Simone is so tiny her legs don't even reach the ground.
