Taylor Swift is in awe of Simone Biles’ talent!

TheOlympic champion gymnast, 27, used Swift’s track “Ready for It” for the beginning part of her floor routine during day 2of the 2024 U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials on Friday, June 28, andthe pop superstar, 34, has shared her thoughts about it.

"Watched this so many times and still unready. She’s ready for it tho👏👏👏🥇🇺🇸❤” Swift wrote on X on Saturday, June 29, in reaction to a video of the routine posted by the NBC Olympics & Paralympics account. 

In the clip, Biles begins her routine to Swift’s track from her 2017 album Reputation, even performing what a commentator described as the “hardest tumbling pass in the world,” — the triple-double — as the song played. 

A seven-time Olympic medalist, Biles previously made history in 2019 when she was the first woman to perform the tricky gymnastics move during the U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Mo. that year.

The superstar gymnast also used the Travis Scott track “Delresto (Echoes),” which features Beyoncé during her June 28 floor routine and her performance in the event helped her finish the first half of the women's qualifying in first place.

Her routines on the floor, the bars and on vault meant she was able to overcome a few wobbles in the beam event and still finish on top.

While Biles has been wowing t -

he crowds at the Target Center in Minneapolis and being cheered on by her momNellie, and her husband, Chicago Bears playerJonathan Owens, Swift has been delighting audiences during the latest European leg of her Eras Tour.

The singer is currently in Ireland, after celebrity-packed shows in London, England that even saw an on-stage cameo from her boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs player, Travis Kelce.

"How I imagined the album world looking was like Ireland. Storytelling with lots of different characters," Swift added, referencing her stories in the album. "You guys have that on lock, too. That's very Irish, the storytelling."
