Simone Biles is probably superhuman. You know most of us would be in a little ball right now, and certainly not about to go do GOAT things.

Because in a year full of obstacles, it feels like there has been nothing she can’t overcome.

Next week she's going to win her fourth Worlds title, break the record for most gold World medals in the sport's history and have a vault named after her. And she's going to do it *with a kidney stone* because she's the absolute GOAT.

Competing for an organization (@USAGym) that putting winning over her safety and @Simone_Biles is still all in. Unbelievable person, athlete, and leader.

Whether it was standing strong with her fellow gymnasts through the court hearings for disgraced USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar...

...or calling out the USA Gymnastics interim CEO, who later stepped down.

*mouth drop* don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything

Now she can add kidney stones to the list.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to a representative for Biles for more details.
