The 2016 individual all-around Olympic champion chows down on pizza, win or lose

Simone Biles, now officially the best gymnast in the world after winning the gold medal in yesterday’s all-around, has a post-meet ritual that is #relatable.

Biles told ABC News on Wednesday, “It doesn’t even matter if I don’t win a self-gold, after every meet I have pizza. Pepperoni pizza.”

Her longtime love for pizza is apparent from social media posts, such as this tweet from Biles that reads, “There’s no “we” in Pizza,” with a photo of the gymnast wearing a shirt bearing the same text.

Teammate and gold medalist of the all-around at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Gabby Douglas, tweeted, “All ourzzz,” tagging Simone Biles and including a photo of YouTuber Caspar Lee holding an impressive stack of 20 pizzas.
