Throwing a ceremonial first pitch, Simone Biles showed off the athleticism that made her a three-time world all-around champion.

Biles flipped before making the toss at a Houston Astros game on Monday, near her home of Spring, Texas.

The throw reminded of McKayla Maroney‘s similar move before her ceremonial first pitch at a Chicago White Sox game in 2014.

Biles is next scheduled to compete at the U.S. Olympic Trials in San Jose, on Friday and Sunday on NBC and the NBC Sports app.
