HOUSTON – Olympic gold medalist and Spring's own Simone Biles put her own special twist on the first pitch at Wednesday's Game 2 of the World Series.

Biles, who recently became the most decorated gymnast in World Championships history, did a pretty amazing flip-and-spin move before she threw the ball to Houston Astros outfielder Jacob Marisnick, who seemed rather impressed.

Here's the video.

The internet had a little fun with Biles' move versus the less graceful acrobatics of Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.

 

 

It's not the first time Biles has flipped for the Astros. In July, she did a cartwheel-like move when she threw out the first pitch against the Seattle Mariners.

Here's the video of that one.
