Simone Biles was back on the podium yesterday, but for a very different reason: She was alerting passengers it was time to board a flight at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.
The smiley gold medalist from the U.S. women’s gymnastics team greeted travelers, made in-flight announcements and even directed air traffic on Monday as part of a promotion with United Airlines.
Unsuspecting fliers ? as well as United crew members ? were more than thrilled when Simone showed up to take charge. And we don’t blame them one flippin’ bit. Take a look:
She was my coworker for a Lil bit today! #SimoneBiles #BlackGirlMagic #Gymnast #GateAgentLol
If I had known I was going to meet Simone Biles I would have dressed better!!
