American gymnast Simone Biles has been the talk of the Olympics — leading her team to all-around gold medals and picking up her three consecutive all-around.
Given Simone has now won 10 gold medals at worlds since 2013, it’s safe to say that Biles eats, lives and breathes gymnastics, which is why if her life literally depended on it, her medals and trophies come first.
The 19-year-old athlete is making headlines this morning after capturing a moment where she chose between safety and her medals and she chose, whelp, the gold.
On Wednesday night, the fire alarm went off in the Final Five’s Olympic Village dorm and the athlete made sure to pack up her most precious belongings before leaving the building. “The fire alarms going off! But we got our gold medals,” Biles can be heard screaming in a Snapchat.
She even tweeted, “When a fire alarm goes off in your building, grab your medal and gym bag. #everythingisokay.”
As for the fire, it was just a false alarm.
