The 1 Word That Goes Through Simone Biles's Head Before a Routine

19 August 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Simone Biles admits the full gravity of her athletic achievements - four gold medals, one bronze - at the 2016 Rio Games doesn't seem quite real yet. "We've just been so busy," she told us over the phone from Rio on Friday. "I guess it's just not finished enough to let it sink in and talk about it. But it's been an amazing journey." The journey included making history, as The Final Five racked up nine medals in both group and individual events, breaking the record for the most medals won by any Us women's gymnastics team in Olympics history. (The journey also included a cameo from Biles's celebrity crush, Zac Efron.) We talked to Simone about her 2020 Olympics future, setting a positive example for little girls everywhere, and those Dancing With the Stars rumors.

Flossie, who's lived too long to mince words, wasn't having it. A sample of her interview: "My grandkids, they say there's 50 of them. I don't know." And the pie-and-whiskey-loving centenarian apparently kept falling asleep before her interview, according to Khq's Nichole Mischke. "How do you think you'd feel if you were 110?" Flossie told her. »
