Olympian Simone Bile, with her teammates, including Jordan Chiles will be performing Tuesday, October 19, 2021, in the ‘Gold Over America Tour’ at the Columbus Nationwide Arena.
“Gold Over America” is a celebration of female athletes combining gymnastics and pop music, showcasing the beauty and power of gymnastics, according to the website.
Other gymnasts in the tour include Jade Carey, Jordan Chiles, and Grace McCallum, and French Olympian Melanie De Jesus Dos Santos.
Biles has 32 Olympic and World Championship medals, making her the most decorated gymnast to date. During the 2020 Olympics in July of 2021, Simone did not compete in the all-around, vault, or floor citing a temporary loss of air balance awareness. Focusing on safety, and mental health were also key concerns in the decision.
Back in 2019, Katelyn Ohashi, the All-American and NCAA National Champion from the UCLA Gymnastics team who went viral for her perfect-10 routine will also be in the lineup. Spectators are expected to see one of the best gymnastics routines that will inspire all.
The tour started on Tuesday, October 8, 2021, in Tucson, Arizona, and will end in Boston on November 7, 2021.
